Ants!!!

Post by ydd » Tue, 11 Jan 2005 3:50 pm

Every time I go into the kitchen I find bunches of those little, tiny ants running around the counters. We do a good job of keeping crumbs & spills wiped up and I just cleared the counters and did a thorough cleaning this morning and they are still out in force. I have ant traps out, but it seems the little buggers are avoiding them! Any suggestions on how to get rid of them??

There is a possibility of an ant colony/ nest in your kitchen, you might want to check for holes along the sides of the kitchen walls and seal any holes with silicon. This should help keep the ants at bay.

I learnt from my neighbour that she says detol keeps insects away. Probably you could try cleaning up the place with detol content.
