There is a much cheaper way to rid ants without chemicals. Mix sugar and borax in a 50/50 ratio. Put it where the ants will find it. They will take it back to their nest and the borax will kill them.

How do i stop ants from getting into my house?

Joe, if you know they are coming in from outside, try sprinkling some Borax laundry detergent around the outside foundation wall all around the house. The detergent should deter them from climbing the wall and entering the home. If that fails they may actually be living in the home and you may have to get an exterminator.
Check the attached links,instruction and guides, Good luck

I don't know if this is the forum for it but I have an ant problem indoors. I have sprayed the ants with Windex. They look dead. Will windex work as an ant weapon? Thanks

Ants leave an invisible to the naked eye trail for other ants to follow so I don't know if it will work, but I can tell you what will prevent them from coming in sprinkling cinnamon around your house will keep them out the cinnamon burns their feet so they steer clear, it is also safe for pets and kids. You can sprinkle it in your window sills and in front of all doors that lead to the outdoors but it is just faster and easier to go around the whole house leaving the ants no way in anywhere. I have 3 dogs, 3 cats, and a small child I do this every spring and my house is ant free all summer, don't worry about rain it just pushes the cinnamon into the ground making a good barrier around your home. There is a spray however that will kill them inside at Walmart that is cheap and will kill them and is also safe for pets and kids but can be hard to find I hope this helps .

1 posible cause.the thermostat supplies 24 volts to the outside unit to control the contactor if you hear a ligth huming on the outside unit this is the being activated. if this is the case then
check to see if any ants are in or around the unit see video, they will usually climb to dry areas before during or after a storm and for some reason they like the contactor if this is the case cut all power to the unit and clean contactor spray the area around the unit with an insecticide ( not the contactor) replace cover and test unit.

Well my Keurig wasn't working as fast as it used to and this morning when I went to add water...I removed the cover and a zillion sugar ants came pouring out of it. Right from the hole where the water...

I HAVE THIS SAME PROBLEM WITH ANTS IN MY KEURIG. I've had ants in the past during the springtime and I've never had a problem with any other coffeemaker being infested with ants. I saw two ants actually crawling around underneath the blue brewing light while the machine was brewing plain water! I've de-scaled it with vinegar and have run water through it over and over and over again. There are STILL ants in it. It's currently outside my home and I have no other ants in the house. I called Keurig just to see if they have heard of this happening and they told me no and that it's an environmental problem. That's obviously a lie because all you have to do is Google Keurig and ants and you can read of other problems. I think I am probably going to throw the Keurig away . . .
