Killing a few you see won't get rid of the problem unfortunately (if its a big problem that is)
    It looks like it runs into a neighbors yard, hard to explain. Im pretty sure its not in our yard anyway. I couldnt see it.

    Default Outside ants - driving me nuts!

    Good old paprika if you have pets and kids. They don't want to go across it, works like ant sand.
    I haven't tried it but I've heard chalk works well too. Just draw the line and they don't cross it.
    I put those ant baits out and they carried the poison back and the ants minimised...not completely gone but don't get them everywhere now

    I think you mean ant rid? Apparently its for indoor use only...not sure why but ive used it indoors in a previous house and works wonders

    Ant rid!! That's it!!! Yeah it's indoor only on the packet but they still take it back to the nest outside. Just kept it in a covered area.
