 =============

In case someone tries to mix up a batch themselves, Terro is better
described as Borax in a sugar solution[1].

Borax is the trade name of a salt of boric acid.

I've been using a mixture of Borax and honey to keep the ants at bay
for a few years.  Use the search engine of your choice to search for
Borax and ants.   You'll find a plethora of recipes.
