How to Get Rid of Grease Ants Fast Using Home Remedies

Also known as the thief ant, the grease ant is common in many kitchens. Grease ants are known to love foods that are high in protein and grease as opposed to sugar. To find them, you only need to follow the trail.

The secret to getting rid of these ants is to destroy the entire colony, including the queen. As long as the colony is still thriving, reproduction will continue taking place, even if you keep killing the workers.

A simple ‘recipe’ for getting rid of grease ants includes 2 tablespoons of peanut butter, 2 tablespoons of honey, and half a teaspoon of boric acid powder.

Mix these three ingredients and pour them on bait(either a piece of wax paper, masking tape, cardboard) or directly on the floor. Place the mixture where the grease ants love trailing. Keep playing with the location until you find a suitable place where the ants are getting captured in good numbers. Replace the bait once it dries up until all grease ants disappear.
