It's normal to spot an ant or two around your home, but if you place food down and it's suddenly swarmed by a colony of ants then you may have a problem.
Every couple of years, my home seems to be the target of ants, and this drives me insane. I'll admit that the first time I had an infestation, I panicked.
I wasn't sure what to do because I did not want to call pest control right away, not until I understood the severity of the infestation, and neither did I want to use chemical insecticides to get rid of them.
I took to the internet, but searching for solutions online was even more overwhelming than you'd think. Everyone has their "best" method to get rid of these nasty little buggers, but surprise, surprise many don't actually work.
It took a while, but I finally stumbled upon one solution that finally did the trick.
The simple homemade ant poison is from Food.com, but it works so well that everyone started sharing it on their blogs and social media, especially Pinterest.
The concoction only requires three ingredients and they're all common items you already have at home. The best part is that unlike many other do-it-yourself solutions, this DIY poison will also get rid of the ants that remain in the nest.
