Ants are pesky little things. It's hard to notice a problem until it's a BIG problem. They're just so tiny that it's hard to see them until there a lots of them.

Luckily, I found a recipe for an all natural ant killer! It's similar to the roach killer but a little less toxic. Still, keep it away from kids and pets.

All you need is baking soda, powdered sugar and jar lids.

1. Combine 1 part baking soda with 1 part powdered sugar. You can mix the two together right in the jar lid. This works because ants can't tell the difference between the baking soda and the powdered sugar. The sugar attracts the ants and the baking soda kills them. (The baking soda reacts with the digestive juices of the ants and they explode.)

2. Place the jar lids in strategic locations. You'll definitely want to place these on counter tops and by doors, as these seem to be entry points for ants (at least for my home).

*Just as an aside, you'll want to keep your kitchen as clean as possible so there's nothing else to attract ants.

If this doesn't work and you still have ants, call a professional. Ants aren't as gross as roaches, but they're still unpleasant!

Good Luck!
