Everyone enjoys spending time outside during summer ... even ants. That's right, people aren't the only ones who'll be out enjoying the sunshine over the next few months. Insects, like ants and mosquitoes, prove to be a huge headache year after year for those of us looking to enjoy a quiet picnic outside. While mosquitoes tend to stay outside (unless you leave a window open), ants will find a way to sneak into your home and strike where you least expect it. There's no worse feeling than opening up your kitchen cabinets and finding them overrun with ants.
This summer, you can finally take a break from worrying about ants, because we've got a foolproof solution. Borax, a powerful chemical compound that many use for cleaning, is the key ingredient when it comes to killing ants. By simply combining two tablespoons of borax with two tablespoons of honey, one teaspoon of sugar, and one teaspoon of cinnamon, you've got yourself a highly effective ant-killer. All you have to do is spread it on surfaces near where the ants are giving you trouble and wait for them to feast on the deadly combination. It works great both indoors and outdoors, as it is easy to wash off of hard surfaces. Remember, borax is still toxic, so make sure to keep it out of reach from any hungry pets or babies you might have in your house.
