Question: Is there a homemade solution to get rid of black ants? I have large ant hills in my garden and lawn.
Answer: Try this homemade ant hotel. In a bowl, mix 1 cup borax, 1 cup sugar, and 3 cups water. Place a loose wad of toilet paper in each of four screw-top jars. Pour the mixture into the jars until it is about one inch from the top. Screw the lids on the jars, and with a hammer and nail, make four to eight holes in each lid. Place the jars in areas where you have ants (but keep them away from children and pets). The ants will come marching into the jars.
