1. Get boric acid (found at drugstores), as well as sugar, cotton balls, and plastic containers with lids.
Soak the cotton balls in a solution made of one teaspoon boric acid and six tablespoons sugar dissolved in two cups of water.
2. Punch holes in the plastic containers. Put the cotton balls in and cover them so the bait doesn't dry out. Place on ant trails inside and outside. Be patient! They'll carry the mild toxin back to their nest to share, and soon the trail of ants will cease.
