    There is a product in Home Depot for ants it’s granules that you put down and the ants carry it into their nest killing the whole colony

    Get a box of Borax laundry detergent from the store. Mix w equal parts sugar and sprinkle it on. Or mix all in warm water and spray it in problem areas. Pests should be gone in a day or so. Safe to use in kitchen and around your pets.

    I have always used ...safely... A mild dish detergent such as Ivory. Squirt the detergent straight out of the bottle all over those ants. They can't go too far and they do die.
