[Sca-cooks] ants

When I had problems with ants a couple of years ago, here is what I did that actually worked:
I followed the trail back to the nest and put Grant's Kills Ants bait stakes near it, which 
are pet safe, unless your pets are ant sized.  I took penetrating ant and roach spray and 
sprayed all around the foundation on the outside of the house.  I repeated this every month for
several months.

When I get one or two ants [which usually means they are scouts], I spray them with windex, which
burns the beggers up.  I also spray the windex around the area so that I can obscure their trail
so no ants can follow it.  I spray the foundation again with penetrating ant and roach spray.
And I put out more ant stakes around if I can't find the nest.
