Has anyone used the borax/water/sugar mixture successfully as an ant killer? It's that time of year again, and the ants are out in full force as of last weekend. Ew.

I've never even heard of it. But we spray bees with hair spray. That works like a charm. It gums up their wings so they can't fly. You can take them out of the air that way. They are free to fly outside, but once they come in the house, we "set their hair" with the hair spray.
