VIA| Ants can be a real problem in a household. They are small, hard to catch, and nobody wants to pick up an ant!
Ants love homes because there is usually food lying around on the ground and around the open space, in addition to having safe crawl spaces to hide their colonies.
If you have ants, you most definitely want to get rid of them because they are such pests, however doing so can be hard, and hiring an exterminator can cost lots of money, and introduce harmful chemicals into your home.
This trick to getting rid of ants should be able to solve your problem almost overnight, and all you need are some common household ingredients!
What you will need for this trick is:
- 1 cup of warm water
- 1/2 cup of sugar
- 2 tablespoons of borax
Borax is a 100% natural product that is found in many ant killing compounds, and turns out you can just buy it at the store!
To make this work, mix all the ingredients together, and soak some cotton balls in the mixture. When night time comes, lay the cotton balls around the areas where you usually see the ants.
The ants will come and try to get the sugar water off of the cotton balls, and when they do so the borax will kill them.
People who have tried this recipe say that it has worked like a charm, and they have not had ant problems since.
