We just moved into the cutest little house and there are flowers and plants every where, and with them comes ants! i have little black ants everywhere outside, I haven't seen them inside but whenever I go outside to water, my feet and legs are ravaged. What is something I can buy to get rid of them? I already have spray and have sprayed the outside of the house, I am looking for something that will help get rid of them. Any advice.

  • so long as they aren't over a gas line you can burn them out.. (that was my problem, th e nest was right over our gas line so couldn't do that lol. )

  • I have a fear of ants, ever since i was little girl. EEK! I would call your local insects and rodents company to get it taken care of, they might even give you some info on a certain bug spray that might work better.

  • How would I burn them? There are lots of trees and flowers around the house that I don't want to harm.
