How To Make The Very Best Homemade Ant Killer

Post by AlleyRose on Sat Jun 14, 2014 6:31 am

Every year when the rains arrive the ants like to move indoors and have a party in our kitchen. At first, only a couple, then they must announce the coast is clear and more begin to arrive.

Borax provides an easy solution for an ant problem. Below are two recipes for your own Borax Ant Bait
Borax Ant Bait Recipe #1

  • 1 cup warm water

  • 1/2 cup sugar

  • 2 tablespoons Borax

Use cotton balls to soak up the Borax solution and place cotton balls near ant trails.
Borax Ant Bait Recipe #2

  • 1 cup of sugar

  • 1 tablespoon of Borax

  • 1/2 cup of water

Place ingredients in saucepan
Bring to a boil and continue boiling for three minutes
Allow mixture to cool completely, it thicken as it cools

To make the ant bait “portable” place cooled mixture onto a plastic lid like one from a butter dish. Before placing mixture down (indoors) where ants are clean area with vinegar as ants leave a trail, telling other ants there is food. The ants will eat the mixture and take it back to the queen. Usually after a day or so the ants will be only a memory… I’ve had them disappear overnight!
You can also use this mixture in the garden!
NOTE: Borax is NOT child or pet friendly. Please read the label… The FDA says Borax is safe, unless ingested in LARGE amounts. Wash pans and hands with hot water and soap.
