How to Kill Ants the Natural Way

Maid Service in Frisco, TX

Our favorite green cleaner.

The Land of Clean maid service in Frisco, TX will encounter ants from time to time when cleaning houses. We aren’t exterminators but when asked by clients for an ecologically sound way to get rid of ants, we do have an old method. In fact, this method involves one of our favorite green cleaning ingredients: baking soda!

Our non-toxic ant killer recipe is made by combining powdered sugar and baking soda. Ants love sugar, but are unable to distinguish between the powdered sugar and baking soda when the two are thoroughly mixed together. After being attracted to the sugar, ants will consume baking soda then walk off and die. The baking soda reacts with ant digestive acids to kill them.

To make this green ant killer follow these steps:

  1. In a bowl, mix equal parts powdered sugar with baking soda.
  2. Place some of the mixture in a small easily accessible container like a jar lid, small matchbox bottom or even a bottle cap.
  3. Set out the containers in areas where ants have been spotted. Be sure not to place in any area where pets or humans can easily knock them over.
  4. Alternatively, sprinkle the mixture in small piles in the same areas.
  5. Make sure all food is removed and surface is clean where ant traps are placed to ensure ants are only attracted to the sugar/baking powder solution.

Remember to keep baking soda out of reach of any pets. A little baking soda ingested by a pet will do little harm but like any human foods, a large amount of baking soda may cause problems for both dogs and cats.
