Every spring I'm inundated with ants. The little teeny, tiny ones. I spotted a few on the counter last week.
Last year I had read (on Geekfest, no doubt) that borax works. The recipe was: bring a small amount of corn syrup almost to the boil - just heat it, don't boil it. Throw in a couple of tablespoons of borax and mix it up.
Place about a teaspoon of this mess, after it cools a bit, on a piece of cardboard or paper towel and put in a place where the ants are found.
I did it last week, haven't seen one of those critters since.
I guess the corn syrup attracts them (?) then they take a few bites of the stuff and go back to the nest and explode or something. I don't know. I just know I haven't seen any since.
You may not even need the corn syrup. (?) Maybe just dry borax would do the trick. But I love to cook.
