Borax ant killer has been popular to get rid of ants. Here are some borax ant killer recipes you can do easily.
Borax and sugar
Borax can be mixed with sugar to form a sweet poisonous mixture effective in exterminating ants. The mixture may initially be composed of 2 tablespoons of boric acid or borax and 1 cup sugar. The mixture should be initially placed in a glass container to be divided in four parts and placed in four small jars. Each small jar should be filled with a small amount of water to form a very thick paste like substance which is thick enough not to completely dissolve the sugar content of the mixture.
A mixture with less borax content or about one tablespoon and consisting of one fourth cup of powdered sugar can be sprinkled to areas where ants are usually seen or linger. The ants using borax to kill ants won’t be killed right away. The ants will take the borax to kill ants into their lair or nest and provide the bait as food to all other ants in the nest including the queen ant. This kind of ant killing method has a high extermination rate since it will kill the ant colony without having to trace the nest location or go near the nest.
When ants eating the boric acid or borax mixture tend to get fatter instead of dying, the amount of boric acid or borax included in the mixture should be adjusted or added. This adjustment is used to either increase the initial effect or purpose of the mixture or increase potency in directly killing the ants.
Borax and peanut butter
Another borax to kill ants recipe includes peanut butter as an attraction to ants. A small amount of peanut butter can be added to each jar filled with the borax paste type bait. The jars should be closed to avoid pets and even children from tasting the bait. A hammer can be used to bore holes into the filled container. The holes will serve as entry points for ants since the sugar content and aroma of the peanut butter will surely attract the ants into the trap. The borax content of the paste will kill all the ants tasting the bait.
Borax and bacon grease
Boric acid of about two tablespoons can also be mixed with bacon grease to form a mixture which can be set in mounds on pieces of paper of plates. The mixture can be an exposed type of bait which is very effective in attracting and killing ants.
Borax and syrup
Boric acid can also be mixed with jelly or honey or maple syrup to form a lethal killing paste for ants extermination. The other sweet products can serve as a variety for sugar since ants may have the tendency to detect the sugar and borax combination as a poisonous mixture and not take it anymore.
All of these homemade borax ant killer and baits are a cheap alternative to any commercial ant killing product but are still more effective. ]
Borax to kill ants can be reliably effective. However, you must handle borax with great caution. The chemical should not just be left behind in its pure form carelessly where children can reach it. This is a lethal chemical when ingested.
