Getting rid of Ants?

I won't have my car all day so I really can't make a trip t0 the store, So can anybody tell me what I can do to get rid of little ants crawling around by my window. I noticed them this morning and now they are crawling up the wall. What is a quick way to stop them from coming back? Is there a certain smell they don't like? IDK, HELP!

  • Unfortunately, the only thing I know of that works for sure is ant bait that pest control guys (like Orkin) carry. We had ants and those little bait packs (2 types of food with poison to bring to the queen to kill the nest) worked within 48 hours on slightly larger ants and within 12 on the tiny ones.

    Sorry that I can't offer another solution. :( Good luck!

  • Corn meal, they can't digest it.
