Kill household ants - Super cheaply
nice n funny story about domesticated man... lol...
Hopefully, by now, your ants are gone or you have actually moved and left your living quarters to them. An alternative for borax is boric acid. Boric acid is especially great for cockroaches. They both work on the same principle. Check your pharmacy for boric acid or a chemical supply store. We have 20 Mule Team Borax laundry detergent additive here, so you might want to check your laundry aisle of your grocery store. Both of them work. I have currently set up a catch and release program on my window sills, between the window and the window screen, I set a 7 day medicine holder filled with borax, sugar, jelly and water. This way I can lure them to that before they actually make it in the house and I can see if it's working and it keeps it away from kids and pets. My fingers are crossed.
I love this! Hilarious!
Borax does not harm mice though...
