Do you have any ways to get rid of them without using the sprays and chemicals? I don't wanna use the sprays because of the baby. What can I do to get these annoying little suckers to make a hasty retreat?

Quoting nlonnon:

We had a terminator person tell us to use Windex.  It worked great.


I will have to try that. What do you do with it, spray where they are at?

Yep, I sprayed them to kill them.  Then I cleaned the surface and sprayed some more and we've never had any back since then.

Terro liquid isn't a spray and if your baby does manage to get into it it wont hurt. My daughter ate it once!

We have them really bad this year, too.  We can't figure out what they're after.  We've put out some of the Terro ant baits and they've worked decently, but we're still having a small problem with them.  My mother in law said that the granules you put outside around the house work well, so we're trying those next.
