Ok. Help! Had a couple of ants appear in bathroom (downstairs). Sprayed with insect spray, steam mopped floor.
Three days later, now in kitchen. Lots more!
Floors are swept daily, steam mopped every other day.
Would continue to spray, but it's playing havoc with my asthma......so any tips welcome!!!

go to b&q and get some bait stations.. I usually use around 2 per room. It'll control where they go.

i do feel slightly sorry for them when they do their line in and out of them but needs must.

Replace them every few weeks rather than what it tells you on the packet. It'll keep them in check.

Thank you......didn't realise there was such a thing!!

We've had them in the past. You really need to find their entry point and put the poison there. They're quickly got rid off once you've done this.

Off to sleep after a night shift, then will venture out and get 'stuff'!! Thank you all

I put cinnamon over entry points, they hate it.

You need to get rid of the nest.
