    if i may sugguest a kinder to kids and pets resolve to the ant problem num 1 and 2

    number 1 :for ants comming into the house sprinkle cinnamon wherever u see them comming in from. u may have to redo the cinnamon due to rain or such washing it away but it is more kid and pet friendly then boric acid ants do not like the smell of cinnamon and or the feel it leaves in the hairs on there legs. , yes the boric acid solution will kill them but number 2 will help u kill them.

    number 2: find two ant hills not close together : take a shovel : and take a shovel full from one ant hill place in ant hill number 2 and a shovel full of ants from ant hill number 1 and mix them up, ants are carnivor and will kill and eat each other

    hope this may help some and be a more friendly way to rid the ants

    I have always used the boric acid, condensed milk and cornmeal balls for roaches, but I never considered using the boric acid for ants. It makes perfect sense to me as does the suggestion for cinnamon for this use. Thank ya'll.

    I have also heard that cinnamon works great for eradicating any ant problem.

    Another must try, I have above ground gardens and they like my wood containers. If I make this into a solution I can spray may be able to get the little guys.

    cannot wait to try the boric acid/sugar mix. We have ants that we just cannot get rid of. I put boric acid around the walls and counters, etc., but so far not much help. This is a great idea.

    The granulated sugar and boric acid method says to leave some mix on the sides of the jars to attract ants. Does this mean on the outside of the jars? Or on the inside above where the mixture is poured in? Thanks.
