Ant Bait Recipe - boric acid syrup

(1% boric acid in 25% syrup by weight) Developed by BIRC

1 Cup sugar

2 Cup water

2 teaspoon boric acid

Mix all ingredients and stir to dissolve. Place in a plastic jar or tub that has about 1/8 inch holes around top edge so ants can get in, but bees and butterflies can’t.

Place some excelsior, wood shavings, dry grass, or styrofoam packing material in the jar to provide pathways for the ants to climb down to the syrup. Pour a small amount of syrup into the jar and set upright. Secure it so that dogs, cats and kids can’t get in or place it where they won’t get to it. Refill liquid once a week or as needed until few ants are seen collecting bait or the bait stops disappearing.

For 2 gallons in a 5 gallon bucket


2 gallons water
5 pounds sugar
0.215 lbs or 3.4 oz boric acid

Borate based ant baits are now accepted by US NOP for use in organic production. Gourmet liquid ant bait is OMRI listed. Take care to keep the material out of the soil. Check with your certifier with any questions and verification.

Borax ant bait 5% borax in 25% sugar syrup


10 pounds sugar
2 pounds borax
Water to make 5 gallons

Borax is a natural mined product and is acceptable for use in organic field situations. Verify with your certifier. 5% borax has equivalent borate as 1% boric acid.
