If you are finding ants in your home, it is probably due to sweet residue left over on soda cans. Next time you recycle your soda cans, make sure to give them a rinse so they don’t attract ants!
If your house is already infested with ants, then you can make your own ant killer simply by mixing together water, sugar, and borax. The sugar will attract ants, and the borax will kill them.
Pouring this mixture in a container, poking holes, and leaving it out for ants to feast on will ensure that they don’t come back.
If you want to kill off a colony, then finding the colony is the number one thing to do. You can do this by following ants around your home, and seeing where they end up. Spraying some vinegar near one will typically cause it to troop back home.
Once you find a colony, grab your borax, and prepare for battle.
