Do You Have an Ant Problem? HERE’S How To Get Rid Of Them!
There are numerous fascinating facts about the ants.
For example, they can carry up to fifty times their weight; they are old as dinosaurs, as they are present on the Earth for about 110-130 million years, longer than humans are; there are more than 10,000 species of ants around the world; etc. still, we know these insects as irritating pests that frequently infest our homes, which is a fact, and we need to get rid of them.
Ant infestation is much commoner problem than we thought, and it is most likely related to the weather. A research from Stanford has shown that most ant infestations in California happen during winter storms and summer droughts. On the market, there are numerous chemicals that claim to eliminate ants, however, it was proved in the same study that these chemicals are not that efficient. Moreover, they can be dangerous for people as well. So, what is left to be done?
On YouTube, there is an interesting solution offered by Greg The Gardener. This solution is a natural ant killer and highly efficient. You only need the following things:
– Hot water
– Spray bottle
Take a cup and mix six teaspoons of borax and six to eight teaspoons of sugar in it. Put the water on heat, and once it comes to a boil, pour it into the cup with borax and sugar and stir until they dissolve into the water. In the end, add the honey to the mixture. Let it cool down and then pour it into the spray bottle.
Next, using the spray bottle, sprinkle the mixture in the areas infested by ants. Spray more of the mixture in the areas with the most ants. Let us remind you to be careful with the spraying of this mixture if you have pets, as it may do harm to them as well as make them sick.
Greg advises that you spray the mixture on a bottle cap and that you place it somewhere out of the reach of your pet. Very soon, you will start finding dead ants throughout your home.
How does it work?
This mixture does work miraculously, but it is not a miracle at all. It just attracts the ants thanks to the sugar and the honey, and then, once they taste it, kills them thanks to the borax. It is so simple, but efficient.
