My house has that problem too. It's always this time of year as well. It's not too bad. Sometimes around the kitchen sink, we get tiny ants here and there. My mom would go outside right where the kitchen is and spray this stuff she has. Ants would disappear for nearly a week and come back again.

Also randomly around the house, we'd sometimes get those huge ants. You know....the ones that make a crunching noise when you smash em? Click the image to open in full size.

If you live on the east coast i would say its because of the rain and simply the time of year. My parents house had a really bad problem with ants recently so my dad ordered this crazy poison illegally from asia i believe. It's this little powder you set out in a container and the ants come and take it all away. What it does is it makes all the ants literally hallucinate. They turn on each other, eat each other, and kill the queen. Problem solved. Click the image to open in full size. It worked extremely well. We havent seen a single ant in the house since. If you want ill ask my dad tomorrow what it is and ill post again.

Yeah we needed 3 of them in my bathroom, this is the first summer we have had ants this bad. It was getting so bad every time you walked in a room, mostly the bathroom you would see at least 3 to 4 ants on the wall. And the ones we have are not those little ants. Its like they would come non stop to, we sprayed around our house with raid and that seemed to work for a while.

Not in my house at all. But in ALL 4 of of my CARS. I can't figure out why?
I had to call an exterminator. Bug sprays didn't do a THING.
And I'm not talking a couple here or there. I'm talking THOUSANDS.

I had a problem with the big black ants. I never saw any little brown ants. My wife got fed up and bought those ant traps. It literally worked within a day. They usually hung out in the bathroom.

We are having an Ant problem here at work. I've been using the cans of air to freeze them in their little Ant trail. It looks funny when you do this to them, the freeze standing up, then they thaw out still standing up but they are dead.

Yeah it's a big summer problem in CA. When it gets really hot, the ants come indoors.

Do not leave anything sugar related out in the open, rinse off all your dishes before putting them in the sink. I recently bought some of those little traps where the ants take the bait to the nest and kills the whole colony, so far it seems like it's doing it's job cause I see less of them now...

A bottle of that Ortho liquid stuff that kills instantly, 1 box of Grants ant stakes, 3 or 4 boxes of some other ant traps called Max or something like that. I also got some bug stuff that you spread out over your lawn, it kills all kinds of bugs though not just ants. Oh yeah I also got a Scotts hand held adjustable spreader.
