Your secret to controlling ants

0 6

Applying diatomaceous earth is quite simple and can be done in a number of ways, depending on your preference. Fill an old spice jar with the powder, which will make it easy to shake the substance onto a surface. You can also convert the powder into a sprayable form by filling a dedicated spray bottle with diatomaceous earth and water (half a cup of diatomaceous earth for every two cups of water), which will expedite applying it to a larger surface (although its bug-annihilating properties will not kick in until the spray has dried). 

When using diatomaceous earth, avoid irritation by employing gloves (the powder can cause the drying of skin) and a face mask (to prevent inhalation, which can lead to respiratory discomfort). In order to avoid any adverse reactions, always use food grade diatomaceous earth when inside, as well as around animals and children. Finally, while diatomaceous earth can be helpful when it comes to eliminating a small number of ants, it cannot be expected to decimate an entire colony. If you have applied diatomaceous earth and are still seeing a sizable quantity of ants in the house, you may be dealing with a larger issue that requires professional help.
