We have cleaned our kitchen top to bottom numerous times, we don't leave food out or crumbs. I have sprayed chemicals, but everyday, I will see a lone ant on the kitchen counter. I am at my wits end, racking my brain on what to do next. I have no idea where they are coming from or what they are eating. Anyone have any suggestions? Should I try those cheesy looking square ant traps?

I just had the problem at my house.

This stuff works great! In a day, my ant problem was gone

grants ant baits around the perimeter of the house work for me!
just make sure you renew them when they are spent!

Have you tried Diatomaceous earth (buy at a swimming pool supply house) or Borax yet?

(I think I spelled that right!)

+1 on Terro, or if you prefer to make your concoction, dissolve 6 parts sugar/1 part boric acid powder in water and put it out in their path. Day 1, you will still lots of ants feeding on it. Day 2 ... still around, but fewer. Day 3 ... almost, if not all gone, as the workers have been bringing the poison back home and sharing it to all their fellow ants too.
