Where Are The Ants Hiding?

I've been having an "ant attack" at my place for the past few weeks.  Maybe a month or two?  They just keep multiplying!  I think I've got them ... but nope ... there are always more ants!

I have put tons of Ant-Outs around my place, they attract tons of ants but they don't really get rid of them!  And my place is pretty clean now, no dirt on the floor, and no food or crumbs lying around.  But still tons of ants, just wandering around!

I have tried spraying tons of ant-killer and putting out ant traps and pretty much nothing makes a difference.

So frustrating!


  1. Man this is my problem too, only we have bigger ants not the little sugar ones! In the past using something called Terro syrup worked well! Try that.
    My mom uses cinnamon and swear by it, sprinkle some cinnamon until you get Terro. Something about it detracts the ants. good luck!

  2. Thanks for the response. I keep hearing about Terro, but I can never find it in stores. I'm wondering if it just isn't in Canada, because it is all my American friends that tell me about this Terro.

    Yikes! Bigger ants sound scary. The ants here are pretty small - except I found two that were pretty big, they were by my door (to the outside). Ugh. Squished them both!

  3. YIKES! That's the worst. I remember being asleep once and feeling something tickle my legs. I threw the covers back and there was an ant fest IN MY BED!!!

    I went crazy with the Raid and then used one of those "bombs." They didn't come back.

    Good luck! :)

  4. Oh yikes! That would be so scary!
    Now I'm having nightmares about ants in my bed, LOL!

  5. So what happened with the ants? Did you get rid of them?

  6. Not completely, but there are definitely a lot less. And I'm moving in a week, so I won't have to deal with them. I will just do a big clean up at the end, hopefully they won't come back for the next tenant!
