♻️ ANTS Driving You BUGGY ♻️ Spread Disease ♻️ Here is the All Natural Solution ♻️ Its SAFE, Non-Toxic and DEET Free ♻️♻️♻️♻️♻️♻️

August 20, 2015

♻️ Household ANTS Driving You totally BUGGY? Ants Spread Disease, and can contaminate our food. Here is a simple, inexpensive, readily available, all natural solution, plus its SAFE, Non-Toxic and DEET Free.

♻️ Lets have a seat, a Cup of Coffee, and talk about an amazing solution to our Ant issues…. Now that we’ve had our Coffee, please don’t discard the Coffee Grounds.

♻️ Coffee Grounds is the Solution. Ants dispatch scout ants all around their territory looking for food and moisture. Once food is located, the ant-scouts round-up a gang of worker-Ants, directing the platoon to the location of the food source. Used Coffee Grounds, used caffeinated coffee grounds that is, {not decaf coffee grounds} is attractive to most varieties of household, lawn and garden Ant communities.

♻️ Accumulate one measuring Cup {8oz} of used ground coffee. Since the coffee has been processed with 192ºF hot water. Therefore the grounds will be wet or moist. Obtain the used grounds within the same half-day that the coffee was brewed, then spread the grounds onto a large oven-top pan to Dry, or simply spread the moist coffee grounds on a opened News Paper for 12 hours to Dry, or place out in the sunshine for a few hours to Dry.

♻️ Dry the Coffee Grounds so that the grounds do not putrefy or become moldy. Once the coffee grounds are thoroughly Dry, refine the grounds to eliminate all the clumps, so the coffee is as “granular” as when the coffee was before brewing. Bottom line, these Ants have to carry each grain, one-by-one, back to their Colony’s nesting place, so lets not have the package too heavy.

♻️ Coffee Grounds offer a “food supply” to the Ants; However, the Ants unknowingly cannot tolerate the ingestion of the residual caffeine; These Ants effectively become “poisoned” due to an over-dose of caffeine, killing the Queen of the Colony and the Worker Ants. Viola, Ants are Gone generally in several days.

♻️ Placement of the Dry Used Coffee Grounds. For typical indoor use, I pour about a teaspoon of grounds into clean, dry, Red Caps from typical Polyethylene Milk Containers. Place these Caps in a variety of places in the Kitchen and Bathroom, any places where you have noticed Ants. Since these Caps are small, put a teaspoon of the dry coffee grounds in the cap and hide each Cap from your view, in a variety of places; not to worry, the Ants will find them. For very tight places, you can use a iced-tea spoon {with its longer reach} with some dry coffee grounds; reach deep into your Dish Cabinet, and simply dump some of the grounds into several back corners of your kitchen cabinets.

♻️ Coffee Grounds placement Outdoors. For outdoor use, for example where “Ant Hills” appear, simply pour a ring of grounds all around the Ant-Hill. You will notice that in a day or two, all the grounds will have been carried grtain-by-grain into the Ant Colony, and in several days, the Ant Colony will become vacant and dormant.

⚠️ Ant Hill images displayed may be coincidentally red-brown colored sand; these mounds are not the coffee grounds, but are the color of the underground sand and soil. Simply pour dry coffee grounds in a full-circle all around each Ant mound. The Ants will carry the some or all of the coffee grounds into their Colony in a day or two, depending how extensive the colony is underground. This is an excellent solution for outdoor yards and fields with young children or pets.

⚠️⚠️ CAUTION ⚠️⚠️ Please be Very Careful ⚠️⚠️ When dealing with Aggressive outdoor Ant Hills and Mounds, these outdoor Ants are generally very aggressive, where their bites may cause adverse allergic reactions, which may require Hospitalization. When pouring the Dried Caffeinated Coffee grounds in a complete circle around the Ant Hills and Mounds, stand at Arms-Length so as to not disturb the Colony.

⚠️⚠️ Ant Hill infestations that are the size of a Tennis Ball, pour about 1/2 Cup {4oz} of dried coffee grounds around each Ant Hill. No precision in this measurement; for larger infestations where there are multiple and hills seemingly connected, this may require about 1 full cup {8oz} of coffee grounds to complete the circle around all the mounds, plus or minus quantities will not significantly alter the effectiveness of the Coffee Grounds application.

♻️ Major Chemical Companies that manufacture and retail Toxic Poisons that kill Ants do not like the publication of our Coffee Grounds solution… However, this method really works and the net cost is ZIP as folks usually trash the used Coffee Grounds anyway. If you don’t drink coffee, go to your local Starbucks, Coffee Shop, or Diner, asking one of the Servers, if you may have some of the trashed, used Caffeinated Coffee Grounds {recall Decaf coffee grounds will not work}.

♻️ Are Mosquitoes Driving you totally Buggy. EverSāfe™ is the ALL Natural Solution.

♻️ Activate EverSāfe by adding 1 cup (8oz) of Tap Water or Fresh Water (not salt water nor brackish water) from a Spring, Stream, Canal, Pond, or Lake, while Camping, or at the Summer Home. Within the hour mosquitoes will not bite you, nor your pets.

♻️ EverSāfe is Non-Toxic so EverSāfe does not actually kill mosquitoes, it simply causes the fertile-females not to bite. Most importantly, EverSāfe™ is SAFE, Non-Toxic, and its GREEN.

♻️ EverSāfe™ is an All-Natural Mosquito Solutions for People & Pets. With EverSāfe™ you create a “People and Pet friendly” Bite-Free ZONE of 10,000 square feet in your front yard, back yard, side yard, dock side, campsite, tennis court, soccer & football fields, barns, garages, virtually any outdoor area. With EverSāfe™ you create a Bite-Free ZONE without toxic foggers, No harmful sprays or powders.

♻️ EverSāfe is packaged in a convenient GEO-Bag that has the all natural active ingredients locked inside. Simply open the Bag as you would open a bag of snack foods. Add about 6 ounces of room-temperature water, gently move the bag from side to side to stir the contents. Once mixed EverSāfe is effective for a week. With our personal use EverSāfe maintained a People and Pet friendly Bite-Free ZONE for 10 days or so. Gently agitating the GEO-Bag every 3 Days, will increase the number of day of its effectiveness.

♻️ You are now ready to place EverSāfe about 20 feet from your Patio, Dock, Camping Tent. Best to hang the Green Bag on a twig in landscape shrubbery 18″ from the ground. Otherwise use a wire-clothes-hanger. EverSāfe is effective in locations where the winds are calm or breezy. I have spoken to folks that live on the Fort Lauderdale, Florida’s intracoastal waterway, typically very windy, and loaded with lots of mosquitoes. EverSāfe effectively maintained a People and Pet friendly Bite-Free ZONE, unaffected by the constant winds and breezes at their Water Front home.

♻️ EverSāfe does not Kill Mosquitoes. EverSāfe maintains a People and Pet friendly Bite-Free ZONE with no poisons or toxins. EverSāfe works by creating a scent that changes a fertile Female Mosquito’s feeding habits, from obtaining blood, to eating plant-nectar. Male mosquitoes do not bite; only fertile Female mosquitoes bite humans and animals, to sustain their life-cycle. Therefor, once EverSāfe has been activated with water, Mosquitoes may remain in your yard, however they will not bite. Mosquitoes may land on your arm, but they will not bite. EverSāfe creates a Bite-Free ZONE, not a killing zone.

♻️ EverSāfe Geo Bag is pre-punched for hanging. You may also hang the EverSāfe Geo Bag on a fence or tree-trunk, using a small nail. EverSāfe Geo Bag may be placed on a level surface, however, protect it from being tipped over by pets or folks walking about in your yard, patio or dock-side. When selecting a location to place EverSāfe, avoid locations that are near sprinklers, as EverSāfe is effective with 6oz of water; therefor, do not overfill EverSāfe with irrigation water. Also it is best to chose a location where Rain Water will not overfill the EverSāfe GEO-Bag.

♻️ EverSāfe is sold at all Home Depot Stores in Florida, Louisiana and Texas, with more markets coming soon. EverSāfe is also available at HomeDepot on their on-line store. EverSāfe Mosquito Solution is also available on-line at: https://www.eversafeusa.com/category/all/
