Getting Rid of Ants
Okay, we have done all the "normal" things, the non-toxic things, to try to deter them--cinnamon, cayenne, also spraying with a water/rubbing alcohol solution. Everything clean. But they seem to be desperate--in cupboards swarming over a skillet that might have a trace of oil left on it, crawling into a crock full of wooden spoons, etc, next to the stove, in the bathroom sink and bathtub, etc etc.
What I'd really like to know is if others are finding them more persistent than ever before, and if you have tips for discouraging them from coming in the house.
