We were discussing the pesty problem of ants around our homes yesterday and I thought I’d share a recipe my Mom uses to get rid of them. We used the below recipe and put a very small drop on a square piece of cardboard by our Kitchen sink. This is where our ant problem was. There would be thousands it seemed. We placed the bait and the ants were covering it the next day. After 3 days, we had NO ants at all and they didn’t come back all Summer!
From what I understand, the ants gather it and take it back to their mound. The queen eats it, dies, and the rest of the ants leave. This is a homemade solution we use any time we have issues. We normally only have to do this once a year and still have the original mix we made. I hope this helps some of you!!
- 2 cups Sugar
- 1 cup Water
- 2 TBS Boric Acid (Borax)
Mix and place in small saucers around the home.
