    Heart Ant traps

    #1

    Boric Acid
    Sugar
    Cotton Balls
    Mix Boric Acid and Sugar in a bowl. Then soak Cotton ball in Mixture and let dry. Place Cotton balls in path of Ants. Poof - they all go bye-bye

    #2

    1/3 cup molasses
    6 tablespoons sugar

    6 tablespoons active dry yeast
    Mix ingredients together in a small bowl until they form a smooth past. Spread the mixture into plastic lid. Any old plastic container will do. Set the mixture near the mouth of ant hill. For kitchen areas, coat a strip of cardboard with the mixture and lay along floor or in crevices where ants travel. Works best with medium to large ants. Try substituting honey for the molasses.
