Hello jaher. Ants can be a big problem any where. My daughter got rid of some in her garden with baking soda. 1/8 teaspoon of borax and honey or sugar will get rid of the ant hill. The ants take the mixture back to the colony and it then kills the colony. This web site give several solutions. http://www.greenlivingtips.com/articles/217/1/Ant-deterrent-tips.html

Sometimes, you really couldn't get rid of ants. Back at home, there was this season, usually on rainy days when lots of ants just come out anywhere in the house. It was pretty annoying. One thing, we tried to do is have a general cleaning of the house but still, there were a few ants around the house. At least, it helped a bit. We tried covering up food and anything sweet in a neat way as to keep the ants from going near the food. Sometimes, you just have to constantly do this and your problems with ants would go away.

I also use insect spray to take away the ants and I agree, Nothing works. Insect spray can only help to kill some of them but it cannot help to take them away. I cannot give you suggestion about it because we have the same problem. The more worst about it is the ants make my bed comforter as their house so I always get ant bites even i always change my bed comforter and bed sheets.

If you can find where they are coming in, draw a line with chalk, they will not cross it. They follow each other by scent so if you interrupt their trail this way they do not know where to go. They will not go across the chalk because the mineral will scrub their outside skeleton off.

Hi,it's my pleasure to help you. My method seem to be a little cruel. You can prepare some food ants like very much and then add something toxic in it. You know, ants like to move the food in their home. You can imagine that all ants in the nest will die of poisoning. But firstly, you should find their home. Hope it will help you.
