Kill ants in one go with borax and sugar! Yes, you heard that right – a simple combination of borax (sodium tetraborate), sugar and water will kill ants and other small insects. Ant colonies (even fire ants) are completely gone after just one application. But how exactly does this borax ant killer work?
Is it really that simple? Ants are attracted to sugar because the mixture contains boron and sugar. Worker ants will quickly find the sugar mixture and bring it back to the rest of the colony. The queen ant will ingest the sweet (but toxic boric acid) mixture and die like the rest of the colony. Boric acid, the active ingredient in Borax, poisons and kills ants. These food sources are attractive to ants, but their digestive systems cannot cope with borax. After a few days, your ant infestation should be a thing of the past.
This is an easy and inexpensive way to control ants and prevent them from coming into your home. This DIY ant killer will also work on larger ants such as carpenter ants.
