Sugar ants come around the kitchen and other places looking for sweet stuff to eat. Other kinds of ants follow too but I generally call them sugar ants. Here is how to make a trap to put on the counter.

Supplies:

  • 1 tsp 20 Mule Team borax*
  • 2 cups hot water
  • 5 Tbsp honey
  • folded paper towel
  • empty plastic container

*Borax is an natural laundry boosting powder available in the laundry section of the store, normally on the top shelf.

Steps:

  1. Dissolve the borax in hot water. Stir in the honey. Dip the folded paper towel in the solution until it is soaked completely.
  2. Press the wet paper towel in the empty plastic applesauce container.
  3. Place in a location where you have seen the ants. This bait will be eaten by the ants and taken back to the nest and will then kill the entire nest. Keep away from children by placing on a countertop where they can't reach it.
