    Do a search. I've seen tons of good advice on the board. I just can't think of anything except cinnamon at the moment.

    I went to Lowe's hardware store and asked one of the floor employees. He asked me a few questions (trying to determine what kind of ants they were), then recommended a product and BOY did it work. Wish I could remember the name (been severeal years ago), but it was packaged in a black and yellow container. Try Lowe's. They are very helpful.

    Ant traps that are similar to roach traps. Yes, try lowes, they are great.

    I don't remember if I read it here or somewhere else, but baby powder (suffocates them), or chalk. I got them in the kitchen about a month or so ago, and drew a chalk line around the perimeter of the kitchen and they disappeared.

    We use a product called Home Defense made by Ortho. I think you can buy it at Walmart.

    What are the ants going after in your kitchen? If they're getting into peanut butter, potato chips, oils and cat food they're grease ants. The product I found that works the best to get rid of them for good is MaxAttrax.
