What can I buy to get rid of ants?

We just moved into our townhouse and we have little bitty black ants. What works? Thanks!

  • Corn starch. They eat it, it expands in their bellies adn they die.

    Also, those are sugar ants... keep all your food put away, especially fruit or anything sweet. They're harmless, but annoying. Don't leave anything out over night and keep the floor swept and such and put out corn starch and I'm sure you'll be rid of them in a jif:)
