Herbal Health Care: Homemade Natural Ant Killers....Mix two tablespoons of borax with jam, jelly, honey or syrup until there is a paste. Smear some on some paper or a plate and put it where the ants are at. They should flock to it and eat it and take it back to the nest and it will act as a natural ant killer.
DIY Ant Control Balls - Mix 1/4 cup sugar, 2 tablespoons of borax and 1/2 cup warm water together in a bowl. Soak approximately 12 cotton balls in the mixture until they have soaked up a good amount of mixture. Place cotton balls in areas you are having the ant issues. The sugar attracts the ants but the borax is toxic. Ants will carry the mixture back to the others and share.
