Letty, there is something you can use that doesn't kill the ants but sends them away.
I know, sounds impossible.
The product is manufactured in China, and sold from Chinese/American stores. Course, can't think of the name now <surprise> but I've used the product.
It's a white stick <looks like school chalk> and ya draw a line where the ants enter the house and "poof" they all disappear.
Course, if your ants are invading riding little ant horses, more than one application needed
