Ingredients 1 cup sugar 3 Tablespoons of Borax 3 cups warm water Instructions Mix sugar and Borax with water until it dissolves. Soak cotton ball with solution then place cotton ball on wax paper. Place the wax paper with the soaked cotton ball near ants. This makes a ton of ant poison, cut the recipe to ¼ and you will still have plenty!
