One of the things I was curious about, was how to get rid of ants, without poison. I tried corn meal and coffee grounds. So, for years, I have been trying do this, without much luck. Till now.
I mixed Borax with sugar, equal parts, and poured it into four ant hills. After about 4 days, there are nowhere near the amount of ants that there used to be. Plus, the ants that are there, are not the ants that used to live there.
I am talking about BIG ant hills. Where the opening is the size of a large peach. Now it looks like a ghost town. I had ants in an area where I wanted to put a bed to plant. Now I can.
I just wanted to let you know something safe and cheap to use. Let me know what you think. If you have other "green" ways to help with pests let me know. Please. I need all the help I can get.
