Wipe your counter tops down with half water half white vinegar mixture about every other week. Also mopping the floor with this mixture will keep them off the floor.
If you have kids in the house and don't like using the ant traps, try using baby powder around the baseboards or using a small artist paint brush and brush pure OIL OF PEPPERMINT where the ants like to travel.

Good tips!
Just for fun - ants don't like to cross chalk. The kids will have fun drawing lines outside on the porch and watching the ants walk all the way around it. They will eventually cross, but it can be fun playing with it. The powdered chalk that comes in the retractable string line deals for "popping" lines is even more fun.

My Neighbor told me this week if you have too many ants in your yard, to sprinkle corn meal around the mounds. Something about they can't digest it and it will kill off the ants. I haven't tried it, but she has and said it worked.

the "terro" 2.97 bottle that you place drops on the cardboard tear offs is great to slide around under the range and fridge and inside the cabinet area under the sink and works great and doesnt break the bank.
