Hi there, in my home I found the little terror ant baits work great, just open them and leave them out and all the ants go in them and then you just throw the trap away.
We used a simple ant trap that you can find at a hardware store. That worked great
I made a homemade ant killer with borax, sugar and warm water. Soak cotton balls in it and leave them out. The ants will carry it back home and feed the colony the poison.
Those little buggers are relentless, aren't they?!? This is the most effective method and all-natural spray DIY that we use with ants. It's best indoors, but will also work outside with more frequent applications. It's even been featured on Hometalk! Hope this helps! Hugs, Holly
