Ants crawling on surfaces inside the house can be a real headache.

A simple homemade ant poison can remedy this problem, as reported by Shared.

Ants can be a source of great discomfort at home. These tiny creatures can contaminate food, and even cause a painful sting.

This problem can be addressed using only common items that can be found at any home. An effective anti-ant concoction only requires three ingredients.

While it's much easier to eradicate ants as they show up to go hunting, finding their nest where a majority of them stay can be tricky.

This do-it-yourself solution is effective in getting rid of the ants that remain in the nest.

Ants don't all leave their nest at the same time when they search for food and drink. Only a fraction of the colony will do so.

These ants will bring the liquid poison back to their nest, without knowing it. The rest of the colony will get to drink this poison.

This homemade ant poison requires Borax, which damages the ants' digestive systems and their outer skeletons.

The recipe includes one cup of sugar, three tablespoons of boric acid, three cups of warm water, cotton balls and a small container or the cap of an old medicine bottle.

The sugar will be mixed with the boric acid, then warm water will be added. The mixture needs to be stirred continuously to prevent lumps from forming.

A cotton ball will then be soaked in the solution and placed it in the small container or cap afterward.

This cotton ball should be placed in the place where ants are commonly seen. The sweet scent of the sugar will draw them into it.

The liquid poison will work in just a couple of hours. This solution has been proven effective.

But if one's problem with ants seems out of control, then it's better to ask for professional help.
