If you see a dotted black line of ants towards any type of door in your house, then you just noticed some ants coming in. Pavement ants are especially active this time of year as they swarm up to mate. Unlike carpenter ants that can cause significant structural damage to your home with their wood-chewing ways — pavement ants are more of a nuisance with their habit of excavating sand and uprooting patio stones. If you decide to get rid of these pavement ants then this is what you need to do.
Get a borax solution or an insecticide with Boran in the ingredient list.
Liquid bait is best for killing ants.
Don’t put down liquid bait and then spray insecticide as well —that just stops the ants from eating the bait!
