borax ant killer

There are 3 different ways you can apply this ant killer:

Method 1: Cotton Balls

Soak cotton balls into the Borax mixture until well soaked and place the cotton balls where the ant trails may be. This can include in your home, around your garden, or literally anywhere you have ants!

Method 2: Spray

Pour the Borax mixture into a spray bottle and spray onto the ant paths. This will prevent ants from ever coming back, and if they ingest the mixture, they will die.

Method 3:

Pour the mixture into different corners of your home or your garden (especially around where you think they ants may come from). The ants will ingest the mixture because of the sugar and carry it back to their colony, which will kill them.

This Borax mixture is 100% safe for kids, pets, and plants!
