Fortunately, when ants invaded our old house last year, I found Lindsay's ant trap recipe. It did the trick fast! The next morning after setting out the bait, I found dozens of ants sipping the sweet nectar to carry back to their nest. The next morning, the numbers were down. And by the third or fourth day, I didn't see any more ants.
Want to know how I did it?
Mix 1 tsp of Borax into 2 cups of hot water; stir to dissolve. Stir in 6 Tbsp of sugar. Dip a folded or crumpled paper towel into the solution, making sure it's saturated. Stuff the paper towel into a small dish, like a ramekin. Place the dish near the area where you see the ants, but out of reach of children and pets.
Do you have any natural solutions for getting rid of uninvited pests?
