Got ants? Not for long! This all-natural insecticide will save you a trip to the hardware store! It’s non-toxic, uses items that are most likely already in your pantry, and is safe in the event that your kids or fur babies get into it. Here’s what you’ll need:
- 1/4 Cup Baking Soda
- 1/4 Cup Confectioners’ Sugar
- 2-3T Water
- Shallow Container or Jar
Mix the baking soda, sugar and water into your container of choice, creating a paste. Place the container wherever the ants are congregating in your home and let it do its magic. Although ants are very intelligent creatures, that are able to detect baking soda, they will be lured to the paste by the confectioner’s sugar, get stuck, and perish. In some cases, a few may get away, but not without having consumed the fatal (for them) blend and/or shared with their colony. Either way, problem solved!
