damn that sucks.. those little ones are hard to keep out, too.. I'd say spray 'em.. just spray 'em all and keep spraying 'em, they'll eventually croak

brake clean works well hehe

they make this thing called Lysol. You should use it sometime and clean your house. Then maybe those sugar ants will stop trying to get in and find the sugar

j/k man. we had ants at our old apt and we kept that place meticulous

That looks like my kitchen...ants everywhere. The exterminator came and was in and out in 2 minutes. He came in long enough to put his little "Orkin was here" paper on the stove. I have complained to the front repeatedly since I know he isn't spraying the house and I am tired of finding roaches that are big enough to carry off a small child. If this keeps up, my place will start to look like Joe's Apartment....which I wouldn't mind if it would yeild me the same results as in the movie.

you need to get some Terro drop and place it all around the house. Those are Argentine ants. they will keep coming. normal poisons dont really effect them much unless you find there nest usually under concrete pads or anything laying on the ground. they usually sends scouts during heavy rain and then invade the house. Terro comes in a little plastic bottle. You can get it at lowe's and Home depot. you just put a drop on the card board square provided in the kit but you will need to cut some more out and place it all around the house where you find them active. it only cost $3.00 It really works.

The fact is my 2 neighbors as well as I have confronted the companies who do our pest control and all have admitted their home spray is useless against the ants. My next door neighbor was charged $60 and all they did was put down terra. I showed my neighbor my bottle terra and she got them to remove it from her bill.

Terro does not kill them outright they take it back to their mound and feed it to the queen and the other ants and they all dye due to the Borax dissolving them from the inside slowly. it takes about a week or two of daily baiting but it works

http://www.terro.com/

The original liquid ant bait and the nation's #1 seller for 85 years.

Made from Borax, TERRO® has very low toxicity, but it is very effective at killing ants.

Borax is safe around humans and animals.

Kills the Queen and kills the Colony.

Exterminator dude just came by. Had some bad *** spray, he would just barely spray them and they were all dead. Quite funny to watch. Said he sprayed the whole complex last week...but he's going to spray it again this week. He's making his money each time, so it doesn't matter to him

if you spray the house the queen wont die. She is outside. They will come back. Unless you get the spray on the queen RESISTANCE IS FUTILE.

Just go buy some terro and place it where they accumulate. They will come in hordes to eat the stuff and leave and take it back to the mound or you can just live with the fact they will invade your house at will and you lazy bastards will lose to Ants BY GOD!!!!!!!!

I have owned homes for 22 years. I know what I am talking about

ANTS >YOU

i love ants, theyre hella resourceful and will do almost anything to get into the house.

im fighting them right now, they have a huge freeway that goes around my front yard, and they have 3 offramps that come off that freeway and go into the house. one goes through the garage and into the wall between my room, but i have no idea where that goes, ill have to look in the attic tomorrow. the other goes into the front door wall and comes out the other side and wiggles its way around the front of the house and to the backyard where it splits to my garden and then to my neighbors house. if i spray the trail they just make a new trail an inch to the left. i tried chalk but they moved a twig over the chalkline and are using it as a bridge. i havent had ants in a long time either but i guess they were massing troops for a huge offensive.
