|I find vinegar and ammonia cleaners all work well but they don't actually KILL the ants.. Which means they still come back later. What I got was a Raid Ant Killer(the bait traps didn't do a thing) in a little red bottle - it's this liquid stuff you squeeze along areas you find the ants.
It attracts them, they eat it and carry it back to the nest and it kills off the nest and Queen. I strategically placed it all over my house and just kept a close eye on my dog. He didn't even notice it and he's a Beagle, lol. The only issue I have with the stuff is after a few hours it sets into this glue-type substance instead of liquid, so you have to scrub it off with soapy water. But I don't really have an ant problem anymore - I occasionally find one in my bathroom but they get in through the window there. They're now gone from my kitchen, bedroom(where they had originally raided) and I don't see them around. I can now leave juice in glasses and whatnot on my tables and counters without getting an infestation.
I also, before getting the Raid stuff, used Comet powder cleaner sprinkled in the areas they were showing it. It was only a temporary fix, but it did work temporarily anyway.
