Do you love the emergence of spring with all the rebirth it brings? We do, well, except the breeding of all kinds of insects and creepy crawlies, which is also an inseparable part of this season. If you see an infestation read up on a simple, all-natural solution that will help you keep your house off limits for ants and bugs.
The secret is Borax, a 100% natural product found in most ant control products that can be found in most supermarkets. Here’s the simple but wonderful recipe which uses cheap, all-natural products which will help banish ants for good from any home.
1 cup of warm water
1/2 cup of sugar
2 tablespoons of Borax
Soak the mixture up using cotton balls, then place the cotton balls near any trails the ants have established in your home. If there aren’t any, cover the areas nearest the entrances: windows, doors, or even cracks in the walls.
This method is extremely useful because it will not only exterminate the ants currently living in your house but also prevent potential future residents from moving in.
If you’re not really a fan of Borax, there are other DIY methods to rid your home of pesky ants in a natural way. Some of the best alternatives are sprinkling baby powder across all of the entrances or wiping down your surfaces with white vinegar.
Try any of these methods and bid your ant colony goodbye!
