Ant infestations are probably one of the worst that could happen to any home or building. Simply because it can never be too simple as just spraying something to end their trails and colonies. You’ll be needing persistence when it comes to getting rid of them yourself. Whether they’d be in the garden or in your lawn and etc, you’re gonna have to go straight to their nest. And so we’ve compiled together the following methods in order for you to eliminate these ant nests in your area.

Boiling Water

As simple as it sounds, it is definitely one of the most known and effective ways in eliminating ant nests. All you’ll have to do is simply look for the entry and exit points to the ant nests and then pour the boiling water inside the nest. Although, you may be required to do this several times until all ants, eggs and colonies are eliminated.

Boric Acid

Boric Acid is one of the well known methods when it comes to home remedies for pests. Simply mix in the boric acid powder with sugar until the mixture turns into a sticky or paste like substance and then simply put on this mixture to the entrances of the ants to the nests. While these ants may be attracted to the sweetness of the sugar, they will also be drawn to the paste in which they will carry and consume back to their nest. When the queen and the other ants in the colony eats this bait, they will ultimately die because of the boric content.

Nematodes

We know, worms are probably one of the very few things that you wouldn’t want to deal with. But to tell you, they actually have benefits for instances like these. Worms are basically the natural predators for ants, and so it makes these species both real enemies. With the capacity of worms to hunt for ants in the most tiniest of places, makes Nematodes very much effective for ants. Simply put in these worms on near the entrances of the ant colony so they can easily reach their preys nest.

Dish washing liquid

Another method that seems to have a very high success rate when being used to deal with ant infestations is by creating a mixture of dish washing liquid and oil. This mixture ultimately soaks on to the ant’s exoskeletons which suffocates them because of the oil. You simply need to mix half a teaspoon of the dishwashing soap and then another one and a half teaspoon for the cooking oil and of course, a quart of water. Once you’ve properly mixed these substances, simply put it on a spray bottle and spray on the areas leading to the ant’s nest. You can also use this to directly spray on the nest if you’ve located it.
