I'm having an ant problem in my house, and have a 3 month old child that i don't want to expose to chemicals as well as pets, do you have any suggestions about getting rid of the ants safely?

Like for a kitchen counter, pour salt where you
see them. They tend to turn around and go back
where they came from. Check under sinks, there
are usually plenty of holes where pipes come
up, and ants #1 place to enter usually.
I just saw some new ant traps out this year. You just peel back the film, and I didn't have time to read if they get stuck on it or what. About the size of a strip of scotch tape.

Yep, Terro is THE BEST. I put it out in the caps off 2 liter bottles. : ) Just set it along their trail and they'll get into it.

We use Terro. Just a drop on a jar lid. Hide it where your child can't get to it. The ants take it back to their hill.
