Other mums immediately asked her how to make how to make the new miracle ant cleaner.
Charlie shared that she used a lid from a milk bottle, placed enough honey in the lid to cover the bottom and then simply mixed in borax to make the syrup. The ants ingest the syrup and bring it back to the nest, this ensures a greater number of ants are affected.
“You can also do equal parts borax and white sugar. That way (especially outside) they walk all over it, ingest it, and then take it back inside their nest. It won't be as quick as ant sand, but it will be way more enduring. You'll notice a huge difference within about 3 days,” said member Nadine.
Added another: "So trying this."
