Ants

The other day I lifted up a plate from the draining board, only to be confronted by about 100 tiny ants scurrying around. I traced the line all the way to the kitchen door, which leads to the balcony. Using superglue I tried to block all the holes I could find, but still the buggers kept on coming.
So then I bought these ant traps from Migros, which have proven useless since they don't go near them. Someone at worked suggested creating a threshold of baby powder (talc) and that seemed to work for a while, in that the ants would get to the threshold and then walk back. However this morning I noticed that some of the more persistant buggers had broken through. What else can I do? I don't have pets or kids in the house so I am happy to go nuclear
