We have ants in our house. Ick!
We've had them before, told the landlord (we rent). He puts out some poison but otherwise doesn't seem to care much. Time to take matters into our own hands.
The poison sometimes works, but the ants seem to keep returning. We thought we had them licked; we hadn't seen ants in several months. Perhaps it was the cold weather? Just in the last few days we've seen a few crawling about again.
I don't know where the nest is. I've looked all over to see where they're entering/exiting our suite but I've never seen them crawl in/our of any holes or cracks. I've tried to follow an ant about the house to see where it goes, but I just don't have the patience
Any tips? We have kids and pets, so any kind of poison must be safe for anyone non-ant.
BTW I think they are carpenter ants. Big black suckers.
