    dont worry cookies. boric acid is not toxic as its toxicity is approximately the same as salt. u can get boric acid at hardware stores or maybe even large supermarkets

    Another alternative is to place baby powder along the base of all doors, windows, and any other opening. Ants will not cross a baby powder line as it kills them immediately. This is one method of how to get rid of ants quickly and safely too =)

    i paid like $100 to pest control, they simply spray some toxic chemicals all around the house and NO ANTS for the next 1-1.5 years

    not a good idea if you have pets or children in the home

    i tried the baby powder. im not so sure if it works cos they walk towards the powder, smell, then turn the other direction. they dont die though. or maybe they will die in the nest... confused
