    So sorry, I have had a little trouble with that myself this year. Here is an article I referenced for my home - https://www.today.com/home/how-get-rid-ants-your-house-t131057

    To protect my dogs I used food-grade DE that I purchased from amazon. Killed them almost immediately. If you don't have pets you can use DE from any store pool in your area.

    Make some small bags, fill with rice and add a few drops of oil of cloves then seal bag. Place these where you see ants and they will disappear.
    When the smell of the oil of cloves disappears I add a few drops to the outside of the bag. I have had success with this method for some time now in the house and caravan. Our dogs don't like them either.

    Corn meal fine grained...I visited my sisters-in-law in Florida one year and it was my first encounter with fire ants and their last encounter with me.

    Clean the area well then spray with either a bleach/water solution or a vinegar/water solution. You have to remove their scent trails.
