2 things I'm going to try!

"Get Rid of Ants Solution

This is a recipe for getting rid of those pesky ants that come every spring and summer. Mix up the solution, pack cotton balls in a jar cover, put the solution on and they will be gone.

Ingredients:
1 cup sugar
3 tablespoons boric acid
3 cups warm water

Directions:
1. Mix the sugar and boric acid well.
2. Add the warm water slowly, mixing all the while so it won't be too lumpy.
3. Store in a jar until ready to use.
4. When ready to use, put cotton into the top of a jar lid to fill it and then saturate the cotton to the top.
5. Place it in the location where it is needed.
6. Note: This solution will keep for a long while. A good technique is to drip a drop or two over the edge of the lid to rest on the counter so the ants will find the solution sooner. It sometimes takes a little while for them to find it, but find it they will. When they do, do not disturb them as they drink. They will hang over the edge of the lid and drink for a while and then take it back to the nest killing the colony. Almost overnight they will be gone."

I seriously need to try this! They are so annoying! On a side note, does anyone know where I might be able to get boric acid? O.O

And then there is coloring eggs with kool aid XD

You just take 2/3 cup water and the kool aid pack and mix it together. I want to try it! My store brand is like only ten cents a piece.

Pesticide section, though you could try regular ant baits. Boric acid is pretty rough stuff. Unless you're trying to be 'natural'... Then, well, can't help ya there XD
