Do you have an ant invasion? Rather than calling a professional ant controller, you can try some organic method to kill ants by using natural ant killers. The Natural ant killer is often very effective and cheaper than the commercial ant killer and there is an only simple easy process to follow to make natural ant killer.
Fighting with ants is something that sooner or later you have to destroy them all, and you’ll not see any ants in your boundary or houses. To destroy ant colonies you have to prepare yourself because the number of invaded ants will be in millions.
There was a time I have been trying to kill ants around my house using some natural ant killer, and, I found some of the natural remedies that work well against ants. Before that, I was tried most of the commercials and killers. Those are also work great against them.
Step 1 – First follow their trail. First find out their colonies by following their trails, from where they are coming, and where they are going. If you find out a scout ant inside your house carrying foods, then you must follow that scout ant. Those scout ants carry those foods to their nests to feed their queen and another member of the colony. This way you’ll find their nests. After finding the nests now you can use ant killer against them.
If you didn’t find any ant trails to find their colonies, then you can try a simple step. Just put some “foods” around any single ant, after some time you’ll see a trail of ants carrying those foods to their nests.
Kill ants outside the house:
Once you find out ant colonies, use ant killer against them. Pour dry ant baits around their colonies. These ant baits are not killed ants on just contact, it is a slow killer. Ants will eat this ant bait and carry back to their colonies to feed other members of the colony and the queen. Ants try to digest this ant bait but they are not able to digest, so they died. As a result, the ants will die due to indigestion. The ant baits are absorbent, so use them on dry sunny days. Also, it is important to keep them dry.
Kill ants inside the house:
The ant baits are good for outdoor use, but most people don’t want to use them inside their house, because they are made with toxic chemicals. So, below I have mentioned some alternative methods that you can try inside your home.
• Collect the following items – sugar, boric acid, cotton balls, jar, and a plastic container with a lid. In the jar dissolve 5 tablespoons of sugar, 2 cups hot water, and 1 teaspoon boric acid.
• Immerse the cotton balls in the mixture and put it into the plastic container. Put the lid on and make a bunch of holes in the top.
• Now you can use it in the area from where ants are entering your house. You’ll notice the so much reduction of ants inside your house.
You can make your own other natural ant killers such as cornmeal, cayenne pepper, etc. these are also works well against ants.
• Keep the boric acid solution in some safe place, keep it away from children and pets.
• Don’t use them around your pets if your pets lick that ant bait and may get poisoned.
TIPS: If you really want to get rid of ants inside or outside your house, try using an effective ant killer that is pet safe ant killer. These days the non-toxic ant killer is also available in the market, these are safe for pets and kids.
