Introduction: DIY ANT POISON!

I need a means to get rid of this infestation of ants in my Home. Using simple household chemicals I made a concoction to finally kill them all.

Step 1: A Container.

A shallow container with water is the starting point. I used a spare lid to hold the water.

Step 2: The Bait.

A teaspoon of Brown sugar in the water to lure those bastards.

Step 3: The Poison.

Lye crystals into the sugary water will screw those ants over. See how they already drink from the poison bait?

Step 4: Let Them Drink.

Ah ha. See how they gulp it down? Drink you fools! Haha haha. An hour later they were dead. Good riddance.

We've got big black ants climbing up and into our kitchen. I don't like them, even though they are God's little creatures. We have borax and are going to use it. We did like your instructable, however. Made us laugh.

Replace lye with Borax and you will kill the nest. They will take it to feed the others.
