    I had best luck spraying my whole foundation and door thresholds with Ant & Termite spray I got at True Value in big white pump bottle. I do this in the Spring and Fall. Wear mask and gloves when applying. Then in the house I use non-toxic Victors or EcoSmart Ant and Roach spray. I wipe it on the counters and door jams to repel them. And it will kill them dead on contact.

    Natural is always better. But if it doesn't work this is the only thing I trust. Hope it helps.

  • Baby powder! Cheap dollar store stuff. You can also use ground cinnamon (but that can get expensive) or peppermint ( I bought tea bags) just put it wherever you find them coming in the house

    I mix borax in jelly and place it where I see them...use only a small cap from a milk jar. Like a teaspoon. Where are they going?

    Poisons destroy your family's immune system, & your pet's immune system. Diotomatious earth is very cheep, non toxic & it desiccates the hard shelled insects. Just a little works in a couple days. It is the consistency of talcum powder. Just a couple grains is all the bug needs to pick up & take to the nest. They can't brush it off, rub it off, and in a couple days the juice is sucked out of them. It works on all hard outer shell bugs like: ants, beetles, bed bugs, rose shaffers, japan beetles, fleas, hard shell ticks. Farmers use it in chicken coops, animal stalls, dog beds, etc. Just shake it in the dog bed, carpeting, infected foliage (on the bottom of the leaves is best), floor around bed legs, edges of box spring/mattress, etc. In couple days gently vac up excess, leaving a slight residue. Check out for more info. I had ants drinking up the drip of the Humming Bird nectar on my porch rail, and sprinkled it in the wet nectar. There were no living ants 2 hrs later and only a few ants came back a full month later. I sprinkled again & it has been 1.5 months later & still no ants. And the spot is in the open & rained on constantly. So, just a trace is devastating to all hard shelled insects & a few others.

    I've used white vinegar and had good luck. BUT ants will keep returning to a food source until it's exhausted, even if you've killed off one nest there will be another. You need to find the reason they're coming back.
