Ants-Get Rid of Them

Q: We have a major invasion of ants. I have tried most ant remedies but nothing seems to work.

A: A friend had lots of ants crawling around the sink in her kitchen. She used a commercial ant bait applied by a syringe, placing little “dabs” in out-of-the-way corners underneath the sink and around the room. After about a week there were few ants left. Ant baits are my favorite but I admit they can be slow to show effect. An insect spray will kill ants but will repel others, so long term control with the sprays not as good.
