How can I get rid of black ants in the house?

We have tried the commercial brands of ant killer and some other preparations (boric acid mixtures, etc.) The problem prevails. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

    Have you tried ground chalk or baby powder? That's all I use. I put it around dog water pail, door ways and windows. No ants anymore.
