Household ant control

Household ant control

To avoid having ants in your house, make sure all food is well-sealed and put away, and wipe up spills quickly. If the problem persists, set out a liquid borax product because it’s completely safe for humans and pets. Unlike pesticides, borax takes a couple of days to work. The ants will take the liquid, and share it with everyone else in the colony. The boron in it prevents them from processing energy.
