Pintesting - Chemical-Free - Pest Control - Ants

The ants never fully left but I didn't make matters any better. My super yummy body scrubs I'm sure contribute to the new ants I find in or around my bathtub.

Today's pintest comes via this pin and the information found here which I combined with this pin info and the info found right there on the pin.

It all begins with two empty baby food jars.

Which I partially filled.

With Borax.

Then I sweetened the deal for the ants.

With a little sugar.

And just to make sure the smell should be irresistible to the little buggers.

I added some maple extract.

Add a little water.

Shake it up.

Using a hammer and nail.

Add some holes to your trap.

I've placed one in the bathtub and one in the bathroom floor. Here's hoping this works.

    BTW, I would like to invite you to consider linking-up every Wednesday thru Tuesday on the Deep Roots at Home ‘EOA’ Link-Up. You can gain more exposure there. It would be neat to see you as a regular there each week
