I've seen lines of tiny black ants that don't bite crawling in trough t crack in one of my windows. I see a few of them crawling on my computers. I also see them eating bits of food. Once I left a zebra cake wrapped in plastic (It wasn't sealed though) the next day I put it in my lunch box with out thinking and I found a ton of these ants eating my lunch. This has been going on for like, 3 months. How do I get them out of my house without getting a pest control specialist?? Also will they hurt my computer?? Please Help.
Pepper is a good way to get rid of ants. Ants hate the stuff. Just pour a line of pepper down and they won't cross it. In addition to pepper, they don't like Cayenne pepper either. You can mix Borax with sugar water, and place it where they can access it. It will poison them. You can also pour Cream of Wheat in a container where they can access it; they'll eat it but won't be able to digest it.
Everytime an ant pile shows up in my yard, I use Cream of Wheat. It's cheap and very effective. They bring it down to the queen and expload because they can't digest it. Safe for kids, pets, amd MIL's.
