Have you ever posted a homemade recipe to get rid of ants? I have a great one and as you can see from the pic – it works to attract them. This pic was taken about 20 minutes after I put out the trap. They take the food home to the mother and nest, and it kills them. I was good for days and days and then another colony found their way into my home and to my horror – it was a bit bigger. I got rid of those, and yesterday an even larger colony showed up. Soon I will have all the ant colony’s dead. I am on a mission here at Villas Marena. The good news is that I am not sharing my bed with 800 roommates anymore. The little crawlers stay close to the traps now if they get in my domain.
Ants Be-Gone Recipe
1/2 icing sugar
1/2 boric Acid (Acido Borico)
I make a batch and keep it in a tight fitting container. I save all the lids from the 5 gallon water jugs. I use them for under table and chair legs to prevent scratches AND for my little traps. Just put 1/2 teaspoon in each one and set them around the areas you find an issue with ants. After awhile the mix gets hard and I need to crunch it smooth again… or replace if it has been awhile.
