Sprinkle corn meal where you see them. They can't digest it so when they take it back to the nest it kills them.

@ yes it is cracker meal not corn meal. as for getting rid of them, nothing really works just kill them as you see them.all is bs about taking it back to the nest.problem is you have more than one nest. just spray them then you know they are dead.

Borax 20 mule team laundry booster .

Make a paste by adding some water to some Borax (equal portions).
You can use plastic margarine bowl lids to put the paste on or paper plates , just place the baited lids under sink areas in bathroom and kitchen (or anyplace else you think the ants might be . Don't leave them in open areas where pets or small children may get into them .

Ants like wet areas , keep sinks dry and use sink stoppers when sinks are not being used (at night), disinfect sinks by pouring bleach and hot water down sink drains .

Store sugar in fridge , keep all opened cerials ect ...in plastic containers. Ants also like grease keep stove clean don't store grease in open crocks.

Also, ants don't like lavender , lemon or eucalyptus mops floors and wipe counters , baseboards ect.. with pinesol lavender scented cleaners , polish wood with lemon scent .

If the ants are biting you use lavender scented body wash and lotion .

I hate ants have battled with them many times ..I even spray ortho ant killer outdoors around all windows and doors .

Good Luck

if you can find where they are coming into your house track them back to their hole. pour enough gas into it to get it saturated, stand back and throw a match onto it. that'll put a stop to them. i have found out that if you get them stopped in one spot they will come in another so the best bet is to cut them off at the source. plus my way is the most fun, you can pretend they are north koreans.

I remember when my family moved into our first real house. It was so exciting to have space to run around and play. We had a lot of ants in our kitchen and my brother and I would stick them with tape to get rid of them. My parents ended up getting ant control to try and get rid of them.

when I get home for making truck payments I just stomp the s*** out of them. Works like a charm.
