Homemade Ant Killer
We all get ants inside or around our home at some point or another right? They are annoying and often hard to get rid of. My biggest concern as a mom is making sure I am not exposing my kids to toxic chemicals or put them at risk for coming in contact with things like chemical ant killers and traps.
Here is a simple, easy and natural solution to all of your ant problems! Simply make a mixture of borax and corn syrup (or any sweetener such as sugar, powdered sugar or honey). Put the mixture in a plastic lid, used and cleaned baby food jar or any other upcycled container that is small and easily accessible to ants (aka DIY ant trap). You could also just place small scoops in problem areas and vacuum up once the problem is resolved. They will be drawn to the corn syrup/sweetener and eat it. The borax will kill them. Ants will also transport the mixture to their colony to feed the others which should take care of your ant problems once and for all!
