Instead of Spending $200 on an Exterminator Do THIS $2 Trick To Get Rid of Your Ant Problem!

Ants can be found in virtually every corner of the world, but the one place that nobody ever wants to see them is inside their house. Even if you happen to see one lone ant, the chances are high that hundreds or thousands more are lurking somewhere nearby. If you ever have a dreadful infestation, or just need to get rid of a few pesky ants, definitely try this simple all-natural solution.

It’s a much safer and less harsh alternative to using a toxic chemical based insecticide, such as Raid, yet it’s just as effective. Plus, the best thing about it is that it’s cheap to make, so stir up a batch and restore your home back into an ant-free setting!

In the accompanying video Greg The Gardener demonstrates how to mix up and use this ant control solution which calls for hot water, borax, sugar, honey, and a spray bottle. Start out by boiling up some water. While you wait, grab a cup and combine 6 teaspoons of sugar with 6-8 teaspoons of Borax in it.

Once the water is boiling, carefully pour in some water and stir until the sugar and borax mixture completely dissolves. Next, add some honey to the cup and more hot water if it’s needed, stir it all together and let it sit. When it’s cooled, pour the mixture into the spray bottle, and now you’re ready to go find some ants to get rid of.

Spray the mix on and around ant trails and focus on cracks and places where they may be entering the house. Allow the solution to pool in high problem ant traffic areas and spray around the foundation. A word of caution, only use this spray outside the house, but it’s safe to use on plants.

Do NOT let pets or animals near it because they can get very sick if they lick or ingest it. You can take a small plastic bottle cap or similar object and pour some of the solution into it, then place it somewhere that animals can’t reach. Also, to be extra safe block access to the mixture even further by placing a pot or cover over it.

This works so well because the ants will be attracted to the sugar and honey. They’ll go back and tell all their fellow ants about it and lead them strait to the sugar source. Once they ingest it, the borax builds up a gas inside of them which causes their death. In particular, this is a great way to get rid of carpenter ants that may be causing a lot of damage to your house, deck areas, and stored lumber or wood piles.

This simple spray is by far the safest, cheapest, and easiest ant control solution I’ve ever come across. As you can see, the comments under the video say that it works extremely well and since it can be made for around fifty cents or so, you may as well try it!
