If you don’t want ants, don’t feed them. If you find they keep coming into the house in search of food, here is a quick and easy trick to distract them. put out a small dish with a teaspoon of honey. Place the dish in the middle of their trail so they find it. when they have found it and brought all their friends, relocate the dish to the outside as close as possible to their entry hole. A few days later, when it rains they will have forgotten about the kitchen and stay outdoors.
