Combat Source Kill MAX Review and Giveaway


What is more annoying then an ANT! I've made posts in the past about killing ants naturally outside. Well the problem is I really cannot go sprinkling cornmeal all over my house.lol So finding a fairly safe way to control all the little boogers inside was a must. By now I am sure most of you have heard or the brand Combat and perhaps have even used their products before in one way or another. Recently I learned about a new product called Combat Source Kill MAX and received both the Ant Gel and Ant Bait to review.
Now I really love the baits because my cats are not able to lick at it, which for obvious reasons is quite dangerous. They are easy to place and use and with 6 per package you can really do your whole house with just one box. The gel scared me a little bit to try but when I started applying I started to ease a little. It is a clear gel and you really have great control over where it is placed. It didn't seem to have an odor to me and my cats never showed interest in the areas I placed it. My ant have greatly decreased inside and the sugar ant level outside has decreased, although the fire ants now are thriving :O(. Combat is running a Bug-Free Backyard Bash Sweepstakes so make sure to enter! Make sure to enter our rafflecopter giveaway below as well! GOOD LUCK!
**I received the above mentioned products in order to provide an honest review. Any views expressed are that of my own and were in no way influenced.**

We have to use this stuff since we live next to corn fields. It works though!

I think I dislike spiders and snakes the most when it comes to household pets!

I hate roaches the most.

I hate roaches (thankfully haven't seen one of those beasts in ages) but ants seem to be a problem often here.

Homemade Fly Traps

We all love summer but as the weather gets warmer the flies get worse and worse. We have a bush out front of our house that I swear just attracts every fly in town! I wanted to get rid of them but I didn't want to kill all the wonderful butterflies it also attracts. So I went about finding a new way to kill them all. I had some empty Tazo tea bottles I simply poked a pen sized whole in the top, added 1/2 cup of water, 1 tablespoon of sugar, 1 tablespoon of dish soap, and 1 tablespoon of syrup.Now I do find that these work better if you place them in the sun :O) If you want to use a bigger container simply multiply the ingredients. Make sure your hole is only about the size of a pen cap! Then they can't seem to get back out.lol

Jello Hard Candy

Most hard candies call for corn syrup, but since I was out and I have 3 children home I decided to experiment and make something fun! Here is what you need:
2 Cups of Sugar
2 Cups of Water
1 Package Sugar Free Jello
A candy Thermometer

Making candy is a pretty tricky process and trust me I messed up a batch or two getting this to work right.lol Put the sugar and water into the pot and turn on medium whisking well till the sugar is dissolved. Stirring pretty regularly to help the sugar from burning. As the sugar begin to boil turn the heat up to high. Watch your thermometer when the candy reaches 230 pour in the jello continuing to mix. Pour this mixture immediately into a cake pan that is lined with parchment paper of you can rub a little veggie oil in it. The candy will continue to cook as it melts anything over 230 you will be left with a burnt candy that tastes like licorice.lol After you candy is cooled completely turn it out onto a cookie sheet and break apart :O) I like to dust mine …

Killing Ants Safely

LOL okay I know the title seems a bit silly. Here is West Texas ants are a BIG problem. Not only do they bite, but well they are really annoying! They sneak into every crack in your house no matter how hard you try. With pets though you are very limited to the products you can safely use to kill ants. As time goes on more and more I am concerned about the products I keep in this house and the effect they have on not only me and my children, but my pets. When looking for ways to rid myself of these pests I found a simple, cheap, and effective means to do so. CORNMEAL! Yep it is very simple, for about $2 a bag I can treat weekly for an entire year! While it doesn't kill them all it has certainly brought down the population so that now it isn't even noticeable. All you do it sprinkle it on top of their mounds and watch the greedy little ants drag it all inside! When eaten it expands and POOF! ;O) You get the picture.
