Last week I shared my Homemade Peppermint Ant Deterrent Spray that helps keep ants from coming in your home. Today however, I want to go a step further. Today I’m going to tell you how to get rid of ants if you already have them in your home, on your patio or even in your yard. All ants, even the fire ants! You only need three ingredients, and it will start working in minutes!

You just need some Borax, sugar and water.
Add 1/2 Cup of sugar to a bowl.
Then add 3 Tablespoons of Borax. (It’s a detergent that can be found in cleaning aisle of the grocery store). Mix together well.
Add a little bit of water.
Just enough to make a thick syrup.
Add to a shallow dish and watch the ants flock to it! ***Keep this mixture away from children and pets!
The ants will nibble on this mixture, but won’t die immediately. They will take it back to their nests, killing the entire colony! If you have ant hills, simply dribble this mixture on and around the nest. The ants are drawn to the sugar, but the Borax will kill them! Whoop!
