I HATE bugs and in Georgia the ants often invade your home when the huge Spring and Summer rains come. So I went on a search for a solution that was safe for my family. And to my surprise it WORKS! In 2-4 days the ant trails disappear every time. Over the last year I have used this solution about 5 times and have not been disappointed yet.
Even though this is a relatively safe option, please DO NOT let your children or pets eat it.
1/2 cup sugar
1 1/2 Tablespoon Borax
1 1/2 cup warm water
Mix ingredients together. Soak cotton balls in mixture and place them in the path and leave them alone for 2-3 days. The sugar attracts the ants and they will take Borax back to their nest eliminating it.
Thanks for stopping by!
