I would like the recipe for ant killer
I think we use terro if we have a problem. To deter them at a home entry site draw a circle in the path and fill it with syrup or meat grease, they go in circles and birds eat them until they are gone. Also put cucumber peelings in the path to deter them. There are two kinds of ants, sugar and fat, put out a cookie and a piece of leftover bacon to see which kind they are.
Here's a couple of DIY recipes from other Hometalkers
HI Rhonda - Those little buggers are relentless, aren't they?!? This is the most effective method and all-natural spray DIY that we use with ants. Hope this helps! Hugs, Holly
