CHAPTER 3

METHODOLOGY

MATERIALS

1.)135 ml Chili pepper (Capsicum annuum) adding more might kill the ants.

2.)15grams Black pepper it works with the chili the black pepper tells the ants there’s

no sugar ahead. 3.) 262 milliliters Orange peel (Citrus sinesis) adding more can kill

the ants. 4.) 47.4 milliliters Cinnamon essential oil (Cinnamomum zeylanicum)

adding more can also kill the ants. 5.) 474 milliliters Water so that the pesticide won’t

have that much concentration. 6.) Graduated cylinder to get accurate measurement

for liquid substances. 7.) Electronic balance used to measure solid substances. 8.)

Beaker for temporary container. 9.) Spray bottles container for the pesticide. 10.)

Litmus paper to separate liquid and solid.11.) Gloves used for handling the

cinnamon.

PROCEDURE

Preparation of the Spray with Orange Peel

The researchers added a 265 milliliters orange peels extract and 474 milliliters

of water in a beaker and mix it using a stirring rod.

Preparation of the Spray with Chili

The researchers added a 135 milliliter of chili pepper,15grams of black pepper,

and 474 milliliters of water in a beaker and mixed it using a stirring rod.

Let Y = the percent living in the treated plat. Orange peel.Preparation of the Spray with Cinnamon Essential Oil The researchers added 47. Then X – Y = the percent killed by the treatment And the percent killed by the treatment (X – Y) divided by the percent of living in the check (X) gives the control or expressed by an equation. Computation of the Effectiveness of the Spray First they subtracted the percentage of dead in the heck plat from the corresponding figure for the treated plat and called the remainder the effectiveness of the treatment. Let X = the percent living in the check. and Cinnamon at the ants it was sprayed at a distance of 5 centimeter applying the spray less than 5 centimeter can drown the ants. Applying the spray The researchers placed a chocolate chip cookie in a tray (the tray has a proximal distance of 30 centimeter on all sides) then they added 30 ants in the tray. When all ants are already attracted to the chocolate chip cookie the researchers sprayed 2milliliter of Chili.

The researchers placed little bits of water around the tray so that the ants won’t get out of the tray.
