Ant Sprayers have differing effects on ants, used either passively or actively to reduce the total number or slow down their regeneration rate. (Ants are the main cause of boost reduction.) Initially, the maximum number of ants is 100 and they can be killed one at a time to a minimum of 5 (although they will gradually return) by paying 1 green coin per ant. Ant sprayers make killing ants significantly easier.
Manual Ant SprayerIf you have the Manual Ant Sprayer, you can click the 'spray' button to reduce the ant number to 5; the ants will take a small amount of time (roughly 3-4 minutes) to get back up to their maximum. If you have the Manual Ant Sprayer, when playing TukkunFCG, the ant level will always be 5. Although using the manual ant sprayer is free, trying to spray ants when you have 5 left will have no effect and will cost 1 green coin. The Manual Ant Sprayer is required for the Secret Achievement "Money Sprayer."
Special Ant Sprayer
After buying the Manual Ant Sprayer, the Special Ant Sprayer becomes available for purchase, which permanently reduces the maximum number of ants by 5; however, this has no effect on the minimum, and there will still be five ants left over when using the Manual Ant Sprayer.
Doom Ant Sprayer
Also available after purchasing the Manual Ant Sprayer is the Doom Ant Sprayer, which allows you to Ctrl-click the spray button and bring the number of ants down to -99, at the cost of 25 Blue Coins . The ants take roughly 6-7 minutes to come back to full, and during the time when the ants are in the negative numbers, boosts will actually be gained instead of lost. The Doom Ant Sprayer is typically seen as a ripoff, as blue coins are valuable, and by the time one can afford the Doom Ant Sprayer, boosts tend to stay at or near their maximum value.
Premium Ant Sprayer
Found in the mystery shop, the Premium Ant Sprayer reduces the overall number by 10 more ants. Also, ants come back 10% slower if you have the Premium Ant Sprayer. Like the other two Ant Sprayer upgrades, the Manual Ant Sprayer must first be purchased before it becomes available.
