    Salt shaken on slugs will get rid of them, or you can leave saucers full of beer for them to drown themselves in.

    If you fill a spray bottle with a mix of cheap dish detergent and water and squirt the ants it will also "do them in". The detergent permeates the waxy coating on their bodies. This is a good fairly ecological way of doing away with excessive numbers. If you have little kids around fill their water pistols or super soakers and let them do it - takes care of the ants and the kids excess energy.
