First, I'll see a couple on my kitchen counter or on the floor below. It's usually because I spilled a soda or left out some greasy chips on the counter overnight by accident. But no matter what the reason, they ALWAYS show up to ruin your day.

I’ve searched and searched for a simple, all-natural solution to get rid of the lil' suckers... and I think I've finally found it!

The secret to getting rid of your ant problem is something called Borax, a 100% natural product found in most ant-control products. You can find it in most supermarkets pretty easily.

Here’s a simple recipe you can use to get rid of ants in your home:


– 1 cup of warm water
– 1/2 cup of sugar
– 2 tablespoons of Borax

Soak the Borax mixture up with cotton balls, and then place the cotton balls near any trails the ants have established in your home.

I’ve tried this recipe at my home, setting out the cotton balls at night and waking up to find dead ants. Works like a charm.
