This Genius Trick Gets Rid Of Ants In Your House

There is a GENIUS trick for getting rid of those pesky ants that get into EVERYTHING, and it’s easier than you think!

Me and ants — we don’t get along.

When I had my very first apartment — I wasn’t the brilliant thing that I am now — I left a loaf of fresh bread sitting on the entryway table.

A day later, there was a line of ants that stretched from the door, through the carpet, onto the linoleum, up the table leg, over to the paper sack that contained the bread, and all over the loaf of bread.

I think every single ant in town must have been at my house!!

You should have seen me frantically trying to clean up the little boogers before my roommates woke up to find the parade of little black ants that stretched our entire entryway.

If I would have just known this little trick, I could have saved myself so much time!!

How To Quickly And Easily Get Rid Of Ants In Your House

First, it is VERY important to note that you need to keep this little trick AWAY from the reach of pets or kids.

Now, you want to grab 2 tablespoons of Borax, 1/4 cup of sugar, and a container that will hold about 32 ounces of warm water.

Once you have gathered the supplies, mix all three of those ingredients together (Borax, sugar, water).

Take about 10 cotton balls — or 100 (I guess it just depends on how many ants you have) — and soak them in the solution.

The last step is just to place the cotton balls anywhere you see the ants.

The ants will soak up all that solution, take it back to their homes, and KILL all their pesky ant family members in the ant colony nest.

Please keep in mind — Borax is poisonous, so keep it, and everything that touches it safely away from pets or kids, and WASH YOUR HANDS when you finish with it.

You also want to keep it away from food, and any surfaces where you are going to be preparing food.

By the way, this little solution also works for some other pesky bugs. When in doubt, try it out.
