Go buy some boric acid. Put it in a pile on the counter or wherever the ants go. They should grab it and take it back to their ant home, and it'll kill them.

I've heard peppermint oil or plants, coffee grounds, or baking soda.

Cinnamon, baby powder, or probably most efficient, diatomaceous earth (you can get it online or at home depot).

Terro Ant traps.  Lowes (and even walmart) have them.

They work, and work quickly too!

I don't really know what it is for outside of killing ants. It's a white powder In the pharmacy aisle. I know they have it at Safeway and Walmart.

You can also find boric acid in the cleaning aisle somewhere around detergent.
