Tired of ants in your home? With this trap composed of only 3 ingredients, banish them from your kitchen, bedroom or living room in 24 hours!
Ants like to enter your home... simply to come and look for food. For them, your kitchen or your living room is a giant pantry, so why deprive yourself of it?! Once they find something to feed them, they come back and you find it harder and harder to get rid of them. Fortunately, there are many natural solutions to drive them out of your home.
Pest experts from Housewife How-tos in the UK warn that "Ants are usually found in buildings where food is served. Once ants find a way into your home, they stay there and create more colonies." This is why we must intervene quickly. To make an effective trap, you have to be inspired by what attracts them: sugar, sticky surfaces, garbage, wood crumbs... From this observation, these pest control professionals have found an easy-to-make trap to eliminate these little beasts. We explain to you.
This trap is crafted from three ingredients: honey or icing sugar and borax. It can take liquid or powder form. Here are the two step by step.
A liquid ant trap
A powdered ant trap
It is just as easy to make.
Ants will be attracted to the mixture. The pest expert explains that "when the ants eat the powder, it dehydrates them within 24 hours. During this time, they carry some of it back to their colony, where it kills other ants in the colony that you don't see."
