You don't have to use dangerous, toxic chemicals to get rid of ants. There are everyday household products you can use. What you'll need: One part borax or baking soda and one part sugar, enough water to make the a syrupy consistency and a container with holes in it so the ants can come and go. Place the "ant trap" in an area you've seen the ants and wait 24-48 hours. The baking soda will gas the ants, the borax is toxic to ants and will kill other ants in the colony too.
