  • have an exterminator come out every 3 months to spray the perimeter of your home. ants don't show up because it's dirty. i think they are looking for water or something.

  • Terro is a great product - very effective. We use the Liquid Ant Killer.

  • www.gardensalive.com has non toxic products for plants and pests. Have tried spraying white vinegar where the ants gather? If they are just the teeny little ants, this should get rid of them.Orange oil will also get rid of ants; I have some in a spray (I buy it at Trader Joes) that I use as an air freshener; you can also buy a safe product called orange guard; soaking orange peel in water may be a DIY method, but I have never tried it.
