I would overturn the anthill with a shovel before spraying whatever you plan to put on it. Otherwise it will coat it and miss many of the ants.
Place one cup of water in saucepan and warm to slightly.
Mix in ½ cup sugar and 3 tablespoons borax.
Soak up mixture with cotton balls or paper towels.
Place the towels or cotton balls in shallow dishes near where you see ants. We will often place them in nut butter or similar shallow jarlids. Whatever you do, don’t kill the ants you see! You want them to eat the cotton balls or paper towels and take it back to the nest, where the borax will disrupt the entire colony.
The above method takes about two to five days to be fully effective. Unlike DE or essential oils, generally it is a more long term permanent solution. Once a colony is wiped out, it is gone for good.
