Ant Poison DIY

Mix up an easy, inexpensive ant poison that works like a charm.

Borax ant bait. Borax is the most common ingredient in house ant control products, and get this: it's absolutely 100% natural. 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.

Cornmeal is the quickest and cheapest way to kill ants. It is safe for the environment, children and pets, and does not attract other pests. Poor little piles of cornmeal near the anthill, the ants will take it home to share. The cornmeal cannot be digested by the ants and they die. It may take a week or so to see the entire colony gone, but it works.
