Borax is a chemical that the ants take back to their queen and they eat and all die. With ants you just need to kill the queen and they all pretty much leave. I believe it dries them out to where no matter how much they drink they die of dehydration.

Bought them at the store.

I was told I could fill bottle caps with the stuff though.
