OK, I've had enough of these ants.

The insect spray kept them at bay for a couple of days, but I can see that I'm going to have to go hardcore and nuke them!

Consulting the net it seems that borax or diatomaceous earth, is the way to go.

Any ideas where I can get either of these items?

Cheers.

Find the nest and if it is outside, or in an area of wall behind a cupboard (typically behind the garbage thingie under the sink) SOAK it with Brennsprit. DO NOT ignite (Well, at least not if it is inside). If you found the nest your ant problem is gone.


The cabinet area under the sink is almost always the way they enter, it has holes through the floor/walls, as well as an ample food supply. I have always thrown an ant trap in behind the cabinet once a year (where the hoses for the dishwasher etc are).
