  • Use the commercial bait trap

Baits traps are one of the easiest ways to kill the ant’s colony completely because the ants will easily take the baits and share with the other ants. Place the baits traps in the area where the ants frequently invade. Do not spray any repellents near the baits as the smell will not let the ants take the bait. Follow the instructions completely before using the bait traps. Ant control is very easy through bait traps.

If you don’t want to use the traps from the shops you can make your own trap by mixing 1 tablespoon of boric acid in 1 ¼ cup of sugar. Sprinkle the blend on the surface where the ants invade. Keep your pets and children away from the surface as the mixture is toxic.

  • Peanut butter trap

This is another best alternative form of baits. Mix 2 tablespoon of peanut butter with the same proportion of honey and a ½ teaspoon of borax powder and make a fine paste. Place the past on the cardboard and place the board on the surface where the ants wander. This bait works amazingly in killing the ant’s colony. You can replace the baits when they get dry. Once the ants stop invading in your house you can remove the bait.
