  • I think you are just going to have to buy some ant traps. They aren't expensive and they work very well.

  • Hi ... I had the same problem.

    Get everything out of your kitchen that you can. Box it up. And put it away. And then spray bleach ALL over the place. Clean up every single surface that you can reach. Not just the floor. Then, get some nutrasweet, and seriously pour it all over the place. It attracts and then kills them. Try to find and plug up any tiny holes in the walls. Leave the sugar stuff on the floor for a while then clean again. You may want to follow up with a bug bomb.
