Small Sugar ants will be killed by the boric acid/powdered sugar mixture. 
You can also mix some of the powdered bullion with it and see if that 
attracts them. I used it on fire ants with the bullion back in Texas and it 
seemed to keep them out of my house anyway.   When treating for ants, don't 
pour it right on top of the mound.  They will treat it like debris. Put it 
out about 4 or 5 feet for the foragers to find.
