To kill ants or roaches indoors, trick them into thinking you're doing something nice by making them a meal with this recipe. Sprinkle borax onto a dollop of jam, mix together thoroughly and then spoon a bit of the mixture into soda bottle caps. Place the caps under appliances and sinks and in the back corners of cabinets, where they will be safely out of the reach of children and pets. Life will be anything but a picnic for your six-legged foes -- the sweet but toxic borax-spiked jam should kill any creepy crawlies that ingest it, and they'll stop making their own meals in your pantry.
