FOR ANTS- Keep ants away from your home with a blend of borax and sugar. Mix a cup of sugar and 1 cup borax in a quart jar. The ants are attracted to the sugar and later poisoned by the borax. FOR COCKROACHES- If you have cockroach issues at home, sprinkle borax powder in the kitchen and bathroom breakfronts. Avoid sprinkling where children and pets could be often spotted. FOR TERMITES- You can discriminate termite damage from other insect damage by examining any holes you find in wood. Termites usually eat only the soft part of wood, leaving the annual rings intact. FOR BUGS- To eliminate bugs entirely, the entire building should be treated at one time.
