Equal parts boric acid/baking soda, sugar, water will get rid of roaches within 2 weeks! Place the paste in areas that the roaches reside; they eat the toxic paste and also carry some of it back to their "home."

    can I mix vinegar and borax? I thought with cats that laying down borax might not be good whereas if I mixed it in a liquid it might stick to the house foundation and deter the ants.

    Ants like sweets, I mix the borax with powdered sugar & water & put the mixture in glass jars with holes poked in the lids with an ice pick. Lay the jars on their sides so the ants can get in & carry the poison out, but animals can't get in to it. Works in the garden too & keeps borax from getting in to the soil. I've mixed borax with jelly or peanut butter too. I think vinegar is more of a repellant.

    I've also put corn meal piles out where I've seen ants, it's supposed to kill the colony, seems to work, and is safe for pets.

    FLOUR - any flour, could be cream of wheat or similar. Enough for them to eat/take to their nest. It expends in their digestive system and they die. This is proven with great results. No need to buy something you don't have at home already.
