The Ants Go Marching One By One...

But there is no "Hoorah, Hoorah!" Ants have been attacking our house! When I'm actually home, it seems like I spend way too much time tracking down and killing these HUGE black ants that are now all over our home.
(Thanks to google image search for the pic of the disgusting ant)

We have no idea how they are getting in or why they won't leave. They have now been invading our house for about two weeks. And Josh's parents and sister are coming in to visit this weekend. Great! The ants just had to come right when they are about to come! We have deep cleaned our whole house for two reasons: 1.) Family IS coming and 2.) trying to get rid of the ants. We haven't been leaving any food out. And not only are the ants in our kitchen, but also in our bathroom and office. After are deep clean and spraying raid everywhere, we haven't seen as many but they are still around. Anyone have any ideas how to get rid of them? At this point, I am completely open to all ideas!

  2. We had the same problem & last year too. We got a spray--I think it's called Home Defense by Ortho. We bought ours at Sam's Club (I think it was around $20), but I'm sure everywhere else has it too. You just spray it all around the outside of your house. It has worked really well for us! Good luck--those ants are really annoying!

  4. Try some ant traps (houses). You can hide them in areas around the kitchen and its supposed to really help. Good luck!

  5. We had that problem last year and did spray also. The spray seemed to help a lot, but we had to do it a couple of times before I noticed a real difference. Good luck - that sucks, I hate bugs in my house.
