A few days ago, I opened our kitchen cabinet to find a swarm of ants. I was so upset because I pride myself on a clean kitchen! I decided to try some natural methods and the first one I tried worked like a charm!
According to most articles on the internet, Borox is what most store-bought ant killers use as their primary ingredient. So I read a few different "recipes" on line and here is what I did:
-1 cup of warm water
-3/4 cup of sugar
-2 tablespoons of Borax
Mix together. Soak Cotton balls in the mixture and place them in the path of the ants.
It's sweet enough to attract the ants but the Borox is the poison that they can't taste.
Everything I read said they will be gone within 24 hours...and they were RIGHT! I did this around lunchtime on day 1 and when I woke up in the morning on day 2 there was not a single sign of an ant!
I tend to be skeptical about things like this, so I waited a few days to see if they'd return. Nope...I have seen another ant (and trust me, I've searched the cabinet for them)!
This works for me!
