OK, I have ants

    Terro is wonderful stuff; accept no substitutes. I've never tried it on red ants, thank God I've never had 'em, but it claims to wipe out "all common household ants." They'll line up to get at the stuff at first, but they'll take it home with them and share, and you'll be rid of them in a day or so without having to evacuate or cover everything in the kitchen.

    Thanks for the advice, folks.

    I think I can get this solved quickly. A late-night trip to Wal-Mart is in order, I believe.

  6. Do all of the above.
    If that doesn't work, feed your roommate to them.

    You sure they're red ants?
    Apartments usually get pharaoh ants, which while harmless are a pain in the ass to get rid of...
    be sure

    When I saw the title of this thread, I figured either SC or Boots started it.

    Well, Slapster, this ant was about a 1/4 inch long maybe and it had a red backing. I'm not good with my ant types, it could've been a pharaoh.

    I fight the ant battle regularly — they are indeed fire ants.

    To kill them, you have to find the mound. You can spray in the house all day and they'll just keep coming. I can usually look outside and see how the ants are getting in, and follow the ant trail. Then I use the powdered ant killer and start going to town. (That ant bait that works in a week is practically worthless.) The ant mounds are easier to find after a good watering because the ants push up fresh earth.

    Again, this sounds a lot like Boots to me.
