How to eliminate ants at home
If you find an ant alone in your house you must kill it immediately as it will be an explorer and your mission will be to return to the anthill to inform the rest about the food sources.
Hire a cleaning, insect control and pest control company. A company with experience and capabilities will be the best equipped to eliminate ants.
Mix borax with water and sugar. Ants are attracted to sugar – it is very normal to see them in knickknacks, sugar bowls … – and therefore it is useful to use them as bait, but you know how. Drugstores and cleaning products usually sell borax (sodium borate) that mixed with sugar and water becomes a very easy paste to spread. It should be placed in some key places, such as in the corners.
Apply anti-ant products. To definitively eliminate ants, it is necessary to locate the point of origin of the pest and finish directly with the anthill. There are many products in drugstores or cleaning shops that are ecological and allow you to eliminate ants without problems.
Place baits around the house. In the key points can be placed baits that have the form of grains and seeds for the ants to transport them to their anthills. Once they are inside of them, the bait spreads the poison and all the ants die.
Water with tobacco. If you are not a smoker, you will not like this mixture. If the ants at home are in the different plants and pots that you have, it is very useful for you to grow several tobacco butts in water for a few days. When you think it’s concentrated enough, you can water the plants with this mixture.
