DIY Weed killer, how to make DIY weed killer, Homemade weed killer

I put a mix together to get rid of some weed in my yard that seems to be out of control. While I was at it, spraying the weed, I saw some ants and decided to spray one of the ants. And to my surprise, the ant was dead in 3 seconds. I was shocked! I thought that ant was joking so I tested it on another. Turns out that the first one was serious, and so was the second one. I wanted to see if it was the scent of the fumes from the mixture that got to them by just spraying it in their paths very close to them.

That turned out in them running very fast and very far without any visible proof that they were going to stop. So I tested again and realized that when they are covered in the mixture, they play a little Karate for what appears to be three seconds then they stopped and never move again.


This mixture is never to be used in your farm, garden or on any indoor plant to kill weed or insects. It was made as a weed killer but it turns out to be much stronger than just that, so be careful with where you use it. It is safe for pets so if fleas are on dogs or cats you can use this mixture to relieve your little friend of those pests.


2  Tablespoons Salt

2 Tablespoons Dishsoap

1 Cup Vinegar

2 Tablespoons Rubbing Alcohol


How to make it?

Pour all the ingredients in a spray bottle and shake well to dissolve the salt.

This Mixture can be used to kill the following pests that may bother you on a daily basis.

Ants, cockroaches, stink bugs, nats, flies,  silverfish and a whole lot more. I think you should just try it out and let me know in the comment section how it worked out for you. It worked on every small insect I tried it on so far.

This is what the weed looked like after three days of spraying it with this mixture!

  1. I’ve been looking for a bug killer the last few days. I tried the ones I’ve made on a big ant hill I found the other day and to my disappointment what I had was not very good. I ended up using a mixture with Borax. When it was all said and done I had about 4-5 diff DIY sprays. No one wants that many or make that many. I am so so happy I found your mixture! I just made and tried it on a spider. It worked like a charm and exactly as you said. Within seconds it was dead! Where has this been?!?! This is by far the BEST I’ve made and will def only be using it from now on.

    Thank You So Much!
