Simple Green and caulk. Simple.

These are good ideas, but sometimes, I find, not practical. I often shallow bury something the ants want (if they are going for sugary things in the house, then something sweet, if meat/protien, then bury that - it can come from what you might be composting). Soon the ants find there is something outside for them to consume and leave the house... Maybe it is coincidence! I do all the cleaning that was recommended PLUS burying the food based attractant. I do not have animals that might be attracted to the food I've buried outside. I do this on two sides of the house where I've noticed ants in the past...Maybe this idea will work for others too!

Thank you for sharing these methods of removing ants! I have actually seen people damage trees by using too many pesticides that are not friendly for young trees. Especially in Maui. Tree service is so important, but people need to realize tree care means taking care of the environment around the trees as well.
