    Those are the really tiny ants such a pest! A simple guick fix is vinegar. Check to fine where the ants are coming in and wipe down that area. This stops the trail for other to follow. You can set same traps for the ants but make sure they are for sugar ants. I have also found that peppermint detures ant as well as lavander. I spray my door entry and basement where I have seen ants. Spider do not like thee sents also.

    Hi Eman!

    Make your own bait! It gets carried back to the nest and kills the queen. Soak a cotton ball in the following solution and place in the middle of the "line" near wear they come in.

    Ant Bait

    1 1/2 Cups warm water

    1 1/2 TBSP Borax

    mix well

    add 1/2 Cup sugar

    mix well

    Store in airtight container

    You need to keep this out of the reach of children & pets as it is toxic. If you need, you can put the cotton ball in a small plastic container with a few ant sized holes drilled in the bottom sides.
