Unique and Easy Means of Controlling Sugar Ants

Home Improvement,Family & Parenting,Health
Sugar ants, like most varieties of ants, are attracted to sugar and sweet things, including those found in our kitchens. However, unlike black or carpenter ants, sugar ants do not have stingers and thus pose little threat to people. At the same time, they are still an unpleasant sight to see lingering over kitchen sinks and trash cans. In order to better understand how to get rid of sugar ants, learn more about why they’re entering your home and how to prevent them from taking over. Cutting Off the Sugar

Sugar ants will enter homes for one reason: they have found a food source. As their names suggests, sugar ants will raid anything sweet, from desserts left exposed on counter tops to bowls of pure sugar and even sticky patches of dried soda and juices (talk about having a sweet tooth!) In addition, sugar ants have a tendency to go hunting at night, perfect for raiding the post-dinner garbage bin of scraps.

At the same time, sugar ants do not feed exclusively on human forms of sugar. Classified as an omnivore, sugar ants also derive energy from the liquid secretion of plants and other insects, such as aphids. Sugar ants share a somewhat symbiotic relationship with aphids, with the ant providing protection from other predatory insects and the aphid providing a convenient food source.

If you’re worried about sugar ants invading your home, the best method to getting rid of them is to cut off the sugar supply at all costs. Diligently wipe the counters and floors clean after every meal; place the lid on garbage cans and toss out the bags whenever possible. Use organic pesticides to get rid of aphids in the garden, so that sugar ants don’t have an incentive to stay. Avoid leaving food sitting out for an extended period of time, especially left unconcealed. How to Kill Sugar Ants

Sugar ants can be killed most effectively through sugar baits with the pesticide Borax mixed in them. Essentially, the baits attract the sugar ants to a single location where a mixture of sugar and boric acid is consumed. This will usually kill the ants on the spot or carry it back with them to the colony, where they will soon die and spread the pesticide to the others.

Other types of pest control against sugar ants involve using vinegar, a more natural form of pesticide. Use a cleaning solution with vinegar to wipe down counters and cabinet doors. In knowing how to kill ants, and specifically, how to kill sugar ants, homeowners can safely consume sugar and other sweet goodies without worrying about a growing infestation. Against sugar ants, you CAN have your cake and eat it too!
