    In the meantime try using Terro. It is a thick sweet substance sort of like Karo Syrup but it kills ants and they take it back to their nest too.

    The best ant killer I have ever used
    1/2 cup hot water
    1 cup sugar
    1 Tbsp Borax

    Place cotton balls in bottle caps and saturate with mixture. Place in ant trails. They will be gone in a few days.

    I hate to spray with chemicals...so, keep trying the hot water with soap/vinegar/borax, etc....

    I use a 50/50 mix of table sugar and Borax. Kills by eating through their exoskeletons, poisons the ant trail, kills nursery via them eating the dead adults.
