How to Make Homemade Bug Killer


  • 1Just put this in a small bowl and add a little water to make it pourable.
  • 2Pour this into jar lids or milk caps.(anything) and set under sinks,under cabinets in closets,doorways etc. etc.
  • 3DO NOT LET KIDS OR PETS DRINK THIS! This will kill roaches-sugar ants-all other ants and bugs too.Used this for the past 20 years and I keep a bug free home. This dries out to a hard like silicone so once a week add a tiny dash of water to your lids or caps or you can remake more and set back out.I just add more water and renew this with the season changes.
