Ants! They can be so harmless but annoying! Here’s a great way to get rid of them:

Mix the following:
1/2 C sugar
1 1/2 tbsp Borax
1 1/2 C warm water

Soak cotton balls in the mixture and put them near the mess of ants. The sugar will attract the ants, and they’ll take the Borax back to their home!

OR trying to enjoy the yard with the dog? Simple tip is to get a plastic drinking bowl (metal will get too hot) and draw a sidewalk chalk line around the bowl, the ants will not cross it!
