How can I get rid of the ants?!

We have ants coming in from an outlet (electrical). I've tried 2 different bug sprays (including Home Defense) I've put down ant traps. Nothing has stopped them! Please help me! I am in ant hell! They are creeping me out!

    We kept having invasions that no spray would stop for very long. On a chance, we bought some (differnt brand, same idea).. OH MY GOSH! We have one in each room and haven't had any invasions except when we unplugged one and forgot it for a few days.
