Seeing that one ant crawl across the kitchen floor will make anyone’s heart sink. Because we all know that there isn’t just one. We know there will be many more that follow. It becomes frustrating and expensive to try and get rid of these pesky insects once they have found their way into our homes. But before calling the exterminator or heading to the store to buy chemically filled insect repellents, try one of our homemade ant control solutions. This recipe uses ingredients you can find in your pantry and it will be safe for the environment and your family.
What you will need:
– 1/8 Cup Borax
– 1/2 Cup White Table Sugar
Combine the ingredients and spread carefully where you have seen the ants. The sugar will attract them and they will take the sugar and borax back to the nest. The borax breaks down the skeleton of the ant and they dehydrate. You should see results in one week or less.
No need for an exterminator or harsh chemical repellents. Just let this recipe do the work for you. And sit back, relax and watch your ant problem disappear.
