Home Remedies For Killing Ants Outside

Ants can be quite a nuisance. The first time you see one, it’s easy to mock, but the next time happens, it gets annoying. You see there are different types of ants that invade and trouble your space. In fact there is not just a species of ant, but ants are another creature classified as pests. If you have the same problem and want to get rid of ants, there are several home remedies for killing them permanently. But if you want an instant death for the ant, vinegar is the temporary solution until you find a permanent solution. Ants cannot stand acidity level of vinegar which makes it as one of the best and most efficient home remedies in getting rid of them. Instead of paying a costly technician to professionally do the job, apply borax to your yard.  This dry powder is used to eliminate harmful insects and is more economical than baits or barrier treatments. Learn how to kill ants with home remedies, which include vinegar, sugar and peanut butter. Some work better than others and some can be time consuming or messy. Unless you’re very patient or have a lot of time on your hands, it’s probably best to spray with an ant killer poison.

Home Remedies For Killing Ants Outside

Use Trenching

One of the most effective ways to kill ants outside is to dig a trench around your house and fill it with water. This serves two purposes:

  • it kills some of the ants, and
  • it makes them go somewhere else.

You can also put oil on top of the water for better results. If you don’t want to dig a hole in your yard (it does take time), then try pouring petroleum jelly into cracks where ants may be coming in or around your patio or garden area so that they have no other choice but to die by drowning themselves in this toxic substance!

Sprinkle Yellow Cornmeal

You can also use cornmeal to keep ants away from your home. Sprinkle the yellow powder around the outside of your house (avoiding areas where children or pets play). The ants will eat it, but because they can’t digest it, they will die.

This method has two uses: first, you can use cornmeal to get rid of ants that are already inside your house; second, it works as an ant deterrent once they’re gone—the smell remains and keeps future invaders away. To do this effectively, sprinkle some yellow powder in a line around the outside of your home every three feet or so.

Pour Boric Acid

If you have an ant infestation outside, you can use boric acid to kill them. Boric acid is a common household item that is poisonous to insects, but completely safe for humans and pets. You can buy it online or at most hardware stores. When mixed with water, the resulting solution will be safe and effective for killing ants on contact. To mix the solution, dissolve one part boric acid powder in nine parts hot water (you will not need all of this mixture). Once mixed, allow it to cool down before applying it to areas where you see ants congregating. The exact amount of liquid needed depends on how many areas are affected by your ant problem—the more places there are where ants are crossing paths with people or pets, the more often they will require treatment with this mixture.

Mix Vinegar and Water

Mixing equal parts vinegar and water is a great option for spraying down ant hills. The mixture will kill the ants and prevent them from returning to their former homes. To create this solution, simply fill a spray bottle with equal parts vinegar and water, shake well, then spray down the ant hills or other areas where you’ve seen ants congregating.

Combine Baking Soda and Powdered Sugar

Combine baking soda and powdered sugar in a 1:1 ratio. This is a perfect combination to go after ants that have invaded your home or yard. Baking soda is poisonous to ants, and the powdered sugar will attract them more than anything else you could offer them for a snack. Use a spoon to sprinkle the mixture into cracks and crevices where you found your colonies of ants, but be careful not to get it all over yourself since it will irritate your skin! If you want it thicker, add some water until it becomes paste-like before spreading on surfaces around your house where the little pests might take refuge.

All of these remedies are super easy to make.

All of these remedies are super easy to make and require ingredients you probably already have in your kitchen. You can make all these remedies in a few minutes, and they’re cheap. They’re also safe to use around the home and around pets.
