I found ants in my kitchen for the 4th time this week can you please give me some tips or suggestions on how?

Posted under Home gardening tips | No Comment

to get rid of them for good? I never really had a problem with ants until this summer they are small black ants. I find them near the windowsill and near the kitchen sink, I have sprayed and sprayed where I have seen the ants with Hot Shot ant killer spray and its says its supposed to work for up to 12 weeks but its not working! I havent seen ants anywhere else but the windowsill/kitchen sink. Can you help me please? Thanks!

Im posting this here too because Im not sure how many answers Im going to get in the Home and Garden section.

I had that problem last summer. I bought some of those traps with liquid in them and the problem was solved within a couple of weeks.

    I've had that problem for years , I put down ant traps, ant spray, and then someone told me to use peppermint oil , they hate the smell of that , worked like a charm!

    I just killed all of mine and they went away.
    I'm really not sure how well the spray works.
    Just kill the mall with paper towels and stuff.
    They probably won't come back.
    Sometimes the spray doesn't do anything.
    Hope this helps

    I have had the same problem. Your not going to get rid of them unless you find the source which is usually outside your house. Circle around it until you find a small anthill and use the new foam RAID antkiller to fill up the anthole. That should take care of the problem. wish you luck : )

    sprinkle a relatively thick layer of plain ground cinnamon on the windowsill. the ants wont go over/thru the cinnamon. it also smells better than chemicals… :-)

    good luck and remember to resprinkle as needed!

    did you know ants usually come in for water? could try keeping your garden well watered to keep them outside
    good luck they are a pain in the a.s.s. to get rid of

    could also try a powder they hate walking on powders try baking soda ou even better baby powder

    There are not any preventative products on the market that a homeowner can buy that are effective.As far as things you can do,Eliminate conducive conditions,Make sure there is no wood-soil contact,trees touching the home,moisture conditions in the home or against it,rotten wood is replaced and sealed,mulch is not piled against the house, and firewood is stored away from the home.The only products that will work are done by a professional,do not take shortcuts in protecting your home.Call a Pest Control Professional and have a proper treatment performed.The best products are baits.Sprays just scatter the ants and will result in a larger infestation
