The sugars that ants like to feed on can be found in plants or many standard foods in your pantry like bread, cereals, candy, peanut butter, and jam. One bait is a plate with penut butter (protein bait) and the other bait is a plate with jelly (sugar bait). Sit them both down and check to see, which your ants go after.
What is the ratio of borax to sugar to kill ants?
Mix 1/2 C sugar, 1 1/2 Tbsp Borax, and 1.5 C warm water. Soak cotton balls in the mixture, and put them out near the mess of ants. The sugar attracts the ants, and they'll take the Borax with it back to their home.
