We live in South Florida where the humid, wet weather is a breeding ground for sugar ants!
Also I have children.
Who hide bananas in the clothes hamper and think that Cheerios are actually decorations for our carpets.
So I am constantly at war with the sugar ants. It kind of feels like an eleventh plague sometimes.
We went the route of professionals and forked over hundreds of dollars for a yearlong bug spraying that actually did almost nothing at all.
Then we found the ANSWER —
Which obliterated the sugar ants!
**Cue the confetti!**
And I am going to share it with you today!
**Cue more confetti!!**
And it’s ONLY 3 INGREDIENTS!!!
Mix 1 cup of warm water with 1/2 cup sugar and 3 Tablespoons of borax. Soak some cotton balls in this mixture and then place the cotton balls in the spots where your ants gather most often.
Watch as hundreds of ants come to feast on your
deadly delicious snack.
The hardest part of this process is controlling all of the urges to kill the ants.
Because there will be A LOT OF THEM.
But you need to wait as the ants will dine on the sugar/borax solution, take it back to their nest, share it with the others, and then they will all die.
(Insert maniacal laughing here) 🙂
Just kidding — but not really. I love all of God’s creatures, but sugar ants just really make me crazy and I tell you, once we tried this miracle solution —
ALL OF OUR SUGAR ANT PROBLEMS WERE GONE.
It took less than 24 hours in our case, but we kept the cotton balls out for several days (and you should too – just to be safe).
I couldn’t believe it! All that money we wasted on professionals and chemicals!
If you are having sugar ant problems – this is all you need to know to get your house back and be delivered to the Promised Land of no bugs.
Now I need to try this process out in my car because that’s where all the ants have relocated.
