      Ant Killer: 1 cup sugar 3 tablespoons boric acid 3 cups warm water Directions: 1 Mix the sugar and Boric Acic well. 2 Add the warm water slowly, mixing all the while so it won't be too lumpy. 3 Store in a jar. 4 When ready to use, put cotton into the top of a jar lid to fill it, and then saturate the cotton to the top. 5 Place where you want it; make several if you need it. 6 Will keep for a long while. 7 NOTE: I usually drip a drop or two over the edge of the lid to rest on the counter so they will find it sooner. 8 It sometimes takes a little while for them to find it, but find it they will. 9 When they do, let them alone; you will want to kill them because they look so creepy; but don't because they will hang over the edge of the lid and drink, drink, drink, and then take it back to the nest. 10 Almost over night, they will be gone.

    Borax ant bait. Borax is the most common ingredient in house ant control products, and get this: it's absolutely 100% natural. The best way (in my opinion) to use Borax is to mix 1 cup of warm water with 1/2 cup of sugar, and 2 tablespoons of Borax. Then soak the Borax mixture up with cotton balls and place those cotton balls near any trails the ants have established in your home. Feeding frenzy... tomorrow they'll be gone
