Common Questions and Answers about Ammonia and ants


Avatar n tn No, your urine has leftovers your body need. The ants are attracted to the leftover minerals, the ammonia, and the salts.
276730 tn?1327966546 If they are the ants I'm thinking about, they are the Pharoah Ants, otherwise known as sugar ants, or 'ghost ants'. I have had them myself on and off over the many years I've lived in Florida. They are so tiny that is seems like you almost need a microscopic or magnifying glass to see them. Does this sound like it could be them? My bug guy that sprays the condo's here told me that they are more prevalent when we have less rain. I have no idea if he's correct, but that's what he told me.
3060903 tn?1398568723 Homemade Glass Cleaner These common household ingredients may seem strange to use as a glass cleaner, but if you think about it, the Dawn blue dish detergent helps eliminate grease, the alcohol helps it to dry a little faster so you don’t have streaks, and the ammonia is an overall cleaner that helps with dust and other particles. This recipe makes about a gallon, so you’ll need an empty gallon container to store it.
Avatar n tn Although plants need boron, too much of it will kill them, so borax can be used as an herbicide. Borax may also be used to kill roaches, ants, and fleas. In fact, it is also toxic to people. Signs of chronic toxic exposure include red and peeling skin, seizures, and kidney failure. The estimated lethal dose (ingested) for adults is 15-20 grams; less than 5 grams can kill a child or pet. For this reason, borax should not be used around food.
Avatar m tn I don't know what happens if lye and bleach meet but I do know that ammonia and bleach can kill you, I forget what they make when they meet but it is a very toxic gas/vapor.

It will kill the fleas, ants and anything else creepy crawly in your home. Just don't use it in your garden as it will also kill friendly worms. Those sticky flea traps will help also to catch the ones "that got away". You can rub the earth into the cat's fur and it won't hurt them even if they lick it off. Great stuff.
Avatar f tn When I took him to the er the first night he woke up screaming they took blood and found that his white blood count was at 600 and also did a chest xray and found a bacterial ammonia in the lungs. But none of this explains the bugs. He has an appointment with his doc for follow up on Wednesday. And im gonna suggest the eeg and mri. Its nice to know that I am not the only mother going threw this.

Avatar n tn This may sound very unususal,and beleive me I wouldn't even mention it, if it hadn't become such an anomoly to me. For the past 3 months or so I have noticed that I have gnats flying around me at home. Just a couple,but they follow me from room to room, wherever I go. They also follow me to work,and I have them in my office too. Then when I go to another person's office, they follow me in there too. So essentially it's me they are after.
Avatar n tn I wash my clothes and bedding in cold water every day. The mattresses and furniture are wrapped in plastic and completely sealed in packing tape and I wipe them completely down with cold water everyday. This has been a nightmare for me. Its cost me a small fortune to buy natural and chemical remedies that don't work. I hardly sleep. I hardly eat and I spend the entirtey of my day hunting the bugs down. I've read on the net that applecider vinager may help.
Avatar m tn One thing I think a lot of you are missing that's important. YOU are the host, @LGAMMA1 mentioned how they are so small you need a good microscope to see them. Now, if that's true, are they not small enough to enter your pours? How small must their eggs be? The eggs, the parasite, it's using your body as it's host. 90% of them in your environment are "hatched" from your body. When you move several times and get rid of everything this quickly become obvious.
Avatar n tn secondly, ours could happen all over the body and it happens more when I am still and in the dark. It mostly feels like ants crawling on the skin; sometimes it's like one single strand of hair touching the face. But either way, it makes us scratch. We used heat, we used freezing, we used isolation for a long period of time...nothing seems to kill the "bug" except Tea Tree Oil seems to be able to give us a temporary (usually overnight) relief.
Avatar m tn Yes a had alot of bugs in my house, ants, roaches, psocids, spiders and the wood larve. For sure is not BedBugs because in the Island i live, there has not been a case in many many years. We dont have bedbugs here. My apt has huge humidity problems, im thinking it may be a fungus, or a parasaite / bug that feeds on the fungus being developed in my house. Supposely, non of the neighbors have it, even do they have alot of animals.( im the only one of 4apt.
Avatar f tn I used to get teased in grade school that I could grow up and get a job as a bloodhound for the police, find missing people and sniff out drugs, etc. When I garden, I smell red ants, which comes in handy, because they bite if you disturb their nest.
Avatar m tn / In addition to vacuuming I've been spraying vinegar all over everything and wiping all surfaces and mopping with ammonia. These liquids kill the bugs, but not sure about the eggs. Does anyone know? I'm terrified of my stuff getting infested. I did notice that the droppings are just outside the door to the balcony, and wonder if these pests came/come in from the trees outside. Looking for diatomaceous earth now.
Avatar f tn I have taken many prescriptions and over the counter meds and home remedies. Now my rectum hurts. Need advice on getting rid of these horrible things. I'm fed up!!
472570 tn?1274689487 A couple months later I awoke in the middle of the night with a swarm I couldnt see on my scalp and all over. The itch was excrutiating and when I scratched my head they got under my fingernails. My fingers looked like sausages from all the bites and I took a look in the mirror and my eyes and lips were horribly swollen with red splotches on my face. I couldnt see any of these biters, even with that many. The itch lasts several minutes and the swelling was gone by morning when they departed.
Avatar f tn U bring up a great topic. Me and my husband have been trying for 6 months and no luck yet. When i saw my doctor she said i'm young(27 my husband is 33) and shouldnt have problems and gave me FOLIC ACID 1 mg only. At the time i didnt ask her about the prenatal vitamins. Now that's its 6 mo. and nothing yet I'm wondering if i should start taking prenatals. My friend told me that's what helped her get pregnant. CharlieGirl007 how long have u guys been trying? So I guess my question is 1.
