for the little ants inside the home i like to use a 50/50 mix of borax & sugar. I put it on a piece of cardboard with a bit of water to wet down the mix. Then i place the traps all around the house or wherever there are ants. The ants feed and take the chemical back to their nest apparently. Seems to clear up the ants in about 3-4 days.

I've tried the borax and icing sugar method which does clear up a lot of ants after several days to a week. You can also help by getting rid of ants in places they like to live in the house such as pot plants by keeping them well watered and in saucers.

I guess it could be potted pot plants but I really don't want to know that answer!
