tiny tiny ants in my cocina

I saw awhile back on the message board that someone bought Borax in Z.
I am wondering where?
I did search the history but did not find a solution.
Hoping to purchase some Borax to take care of my tiny tiny ants in my cocina!
Or if anyone has a suggestion to keep the ants under control, greatly appreciated.

I also would be interested if someone knows where to buy this in town. I ended up buying some at amazon.com.mx because I couldn't find any here despite several trips around the market and several stores. This eco friendly solution to ant control is the way to go.

Boric acid powder is what you need to use. Not plain borax.

Borax and icing sugar is what we use. I find borax in the laundry section at the stores here. Hey, maybe ask at one of the laundries in town. They might know.

Try vinegar and water, spray it where the ants are then wipe it off. Some people add a couple of drops of dish soap to the mixture

I'm a fisherman, so I'm frequently processing fish in my kitchen. I started using a spray bottle with a mixture of white vinegar and water to clean up after processing fish to make sure there is no fishy smell afterwards. It's seems to have the added benefit of discouraging ants. Last year when every other apartment in my building was having problems with ants, there was none in mine. Now I spray my counters daily, and around windows and other entry points occasionally.

If you can get a bottle of Avon Original Skin so Soft spray. You spray their trail. I sell a lot for mixing in water when bathing their pets. I have sold the spray to the kids showing their animals at the fair- makes the coat shine and keeps the bugs off.
