Materials Needed For This DIY:

  • Cool Whip or Sour Cream Container
  • Borax
  • Sugar
  • Water
  • Piece Of Food

Step Two

Mix up one part borax, three parts sugar with some warm water. Stir the mixture around to make sure the borax and sugar are dissolved.

Step Three

Place some sort of solid food into the tuperware. In the video down below, Fraser Valley Rose Farm uses an instant waffle, but you can use whatever solid food you have access to.

Step Four

Pour the borax and sugar mixture over the solid food. The baby ants will eat the solid food and the larger ants will carry it back to their young and the queen ant. Then the entire colony will be wiped out.
