    I read somewhere, maybe on Hometalk, that Jiffy cornbread muffin mix works well. I didn't believe it, but tried it and it's TRUE! Just sprinkle the dry mix in the areas that are ant infected, the ants disappear within a few days. I use this method whenever I hace ants on my patio or porch areas. Works every time.

    Getting rid of ants is easy with Dawn Dish Soap. Spray a mixture of water and Dawn directly onto countertops, floors, sinks, or wherever the ants seem to be. ...

We tried everything from poisons to bait, everything. An old timer told us about cornmeal. It WORKS. I keep Jiffy in my pantry year round for any "invading ants". We need ants, but not the kind that are invaders
