Dear John,
         A simple ant control is to make a syrup of 1/3 c. sugar to 1 cup 
water.  Boil to dissolve the sugar.  Add 1/4 tsp Boric acid.  Put in 
shallow container accessible to the ants.  They will carry it back to their 
nest.  Very effective stuff.  Since it is poison take precautions to keep 
the poison from pets and children.
