Sweet-eating ants are attracted to a simple mixture of equal parts of 20 Mule Team Borax and powdered sugar. When they eat it, they carry it back to their nest and it wipes the population out. It works!

Borax does have some repelling traits to it so you may have better results cutting back from the 50-50 mixture to less than a 10% mixture. One teaspoon borax to 12-15 spoons of your bait (sugar, jelly, syrup). (02/05/2010)
