With the weather being mildly crazy this last month or so we've been experiences a small surge of smallish ants attempting to move in to survive the cold. No thanks.
Today's pintest comes to us via this pin, I chose to just use the information right there on the original pin.
We didn't have jam (something I hope to resolve soon) but we do keep plenty of honey around so I chose to mix my borax with honey. I also was a bit naughty and didn't measure things exactly.
I made sure to mix the two until I have a nice paste and then set out
the bowl in the bathroom near the crack in the wall that I have seen the
ants using to come in.
I let it sit for about 72 hours and at first it seemed like the ants were entirely gone (pintrest be praised!)
Is this pin worth a try? Yes, but I wouldn't expect it to be an end-all solution. I will try it again in the future with a proper mixture, possibly a plate, and jam instead of honey.
