    Start by checking for ant hills outside your house. They can be found in sidewalk cracks and dirt piles. Spray with an insect spray for ants. Spray the ant hills, and anywhere you find ants. Next, if their in the house, buy some ant traps, place then on the counter. Ants will go back to the nest, and bring the poison with them. Don't kill an ant at any time, let them find the traps. When you kill the ant hills, then you'll see they stop coming. Wait at least a week before you throw away the traps.

    This trick just got rid of every single ant in my home and has kept them away for nearly 4months now and has worked in everyone's home I have told this to. Redo this if needed after time but I've yet needed to repeat this process. Take a paper towel and fold lengthwise intil it's a strip you will be able to wedge between your counters and border. Between the floors and base boards as well. Using a spray bottle with warm water and bleach soak the paper towels and leave them for a whole day or overnight. Obviously, if you have carpeting you cannot get bleach on without ruining it or have sensitivity to bleach this trick may not be for you but it works. Also keep any pets away while treating your problem areas. Always clean your kitchen after cooking or spilling anything that would attract ants which is pretty much anything.

    There is an ant killer called TERRO that you can buy at Lowes. After I used it, the ants disappeared.
