Can I mix CB Borid Boric Acid Dust with water and sugar to get rid of Argentine ants?

I was told to mix Boric acid with water and sugar, to eliminate Argentine ants on my property. Is this the right stuff? I don't see anything that says to mix it with water.


Mixing CB Borid Boric Acid Dust with water and sugar would be considered an "off label use" and as such we cannot recommend you do it. Mixing boric acid dusts with water and sugar is a long used home remedy type treatment for ant infestations. There are many products on the market today that are more effective than boric acid mixtures. We offer a Complete Ant Kit that comes with all of the products you will need to treat an ant infestation. We include two different types of bait in the kit to suit the ants nutritional needs and to encourage bait acceptance.
