How to make a weed killed that can kill insects on spot. This mixture is a great hack to get rid of weed and insects in a safe way.

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 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.How to make a weed killed that can kill insects on spot. This mixture is a great hack to get rid of weed and insects in a safe way.

Using a funnel to get the ingredients down into the spray bottle can be very easy and save some time. I tried without the funnel and it was not the best idea.

So I scrape off the excess salt to make it exactly one tablespoon. That is just a habit of mine to so-called get things accurate when measuring. You do not necessarily have to do the same for the mixture to work.

I am of the opinion that rubbing alcohol is what may have caused the insects to stop quickly. That’s just my opinion though, you can let me know from a scientific perspective what really makes it so effective.

Shake well to dissolve and combine all the ingredients. We do not want any grain of salt blocking the spray hose inside the bottle. Then when you are ready to stop fly, cockroach, or some ants in their tracks it’s not spraying. Haha

  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!

      Thank you so much for such a wonderful comment. I love the fact that you tested it yourself and see that it worked. Thanks so much for letting us know.

  2. If you use salt in the garden, it will kill the soil, and be aware that it does real damage to cement and other materials. I had a tenant who used table salt on her sidewalk when it was icy. I had to replace the sidewalk because it crumbled from the salt. Wasn’t it the Romans who salted their enemy’s fields so nothing would grow for years? Be careful where you use it is all I’m saying!

  3. OMG! This stuff works! Amazing in flies, I thought I had a clean seed starter but it must have had larva in it. Came in today and the place wa full of flies. I found this mixture in a Pinterest search, tried it and they started dropping. I’m saving this one!

    I have some kind of bugs in my sofa and possibly my bed. Is it safe to spray these? Will they discolor the fabric?

      this mixture is not good for your sofa! The salt will leave white deposits on it.

      It can, it kills weed so it is possible. So be careful.
