ANTS they have taken over my house! No food around just ants everywhere

I have NEVER hated ants. NOW i hate them, they are living in my house. They made it their home. I have 4 bedroom a sitting room 2 bathrooms and they are in EVERY room. I bought some Terro ant bate yesturday. I am not playing with these stupid ants. I thought that they came from outside and go back outside. OH no they are living in the walls, carpet, everywhere! I can understand the kitchen but every dam room! So help me? I already had the pathetic exterminator come. He sprayed. That didnt work. So now what? I am gonna see if this bate works. I've had it! I HATE ANTS!!

  • Use baby powder in the creases where the wall meets the carpet... also look outside close to your home to see if you can spot an ant hill.. i once had an any hill right outside my back door!!

  • Be sure to check your basement (if you have one), in the water heater closet, under sinks, etc for any standing water or rotting wood. They usually track down a water source.

  • I don't have a basement. I thought the same about the rain that they would go back outside. OH NO not these dam ants. They made it their home. I killed a bunch of them with the bate.

  • Don't leave in water in the sink or wet counters or wet dishes either they are attracted to it. We're in the process of getting rid of ours and it's hard
