Boric acid bait to kill ants in your tortoise enclosure


Note: wear gloves and do not breathe the powder during the preparation of the bait.

  • One half-cup (350 grams) boric acid - looks like white powder and is available in pharmacies
  • one cup flour
  • two heaping spoonfuls of sugar
  • water
  1. Mix boric acid, flour, and sugar.
  2. Moisten with just enough water to make a paste that can be formed into small cylinders or balls.
  3. Make as many of them as you can. 
  4. Distribute them in critical concealed places.
