Peanut Butter Sandwiches That Kill Ants

Jun 27, 2008
Do you have problems with ants in your home? Well, I did until I found out about boric acid and peanut butter and jelly sandwiches! Read on...

As a natural insecticide, boric acid is a substance you can keep at home to use to kill ants, roaches, termites, beetles, fire ants, fleas and many more insects.

It is an inexpensive product found in most drug or discount stores. As a white powder that is odorless it can be purchased in different size bottles.

It is "deadly" to insects because it shuts down their nervous system causing them to go into "shock" while dehydrating them.

Did you know that this chemical is used in most of the store bought baits and commercial pesticides?

The consumer, you and I, spend hundreds of dollars every year trying to rid our homes, and gardens, of pesky little varmits using commercial products and/or services. But, I can assure you that you can make your own "baits" for critters such as ants and have even better results at more than a fourth of the cost. Now thats worth taking note of and trying!

Boric acid has been used for many years for things we would not even think of. Did you know that it is used to help flame retard cotton fibers? It is placed in the mixing machines along with oil and a chemical surfactant before garneting of the cotton fibers begin. The properly treated cotton is flame retardant which is then used in mattresses, upholstered furniture and some carpets.

According to the Environmental Protection Agency, boric acid is an odorless, inorganic safe product to use.

However, it can be toxic if misused. It is never to be ingested and must be kept away from children at all times. Be sure to always wash your hands and surfaces thoroughly after using it.

Click on the first link by About Author to find out how a "peanut butter sandwich" will literally kill those pesky ants. Yes, it really will! In addition, there are more receipes that also work quite well.

One thing that is an important tool to remember when you are trying to rid your home of ants or any insect, for that matter, is you want to create a barrier. There has to be something in place to keep those little varmits away.

Were you aware that ants don't like strong smells? And because of that you can use spices such as cinnamon and black pepper to keep them away. Or vinegar, which has multiple uses, will stop them in their tracks.
