Which are they more attracted to, fat or sugar?  The fat-eating ants 
respond well to a strong brew of chili peppers.  Sometimes when I'm 
feeling mean I'll throw in mustard powder too.  Watch them go ouchie 
ouch, with little anty hotfoots!  They'll clear out fast and it won't 
poison kids nor pets.

Do what you can to locate their entry point and spray around it 
liberally.  This includes entire door frames, electrical outlets, etc.
