Despite living in a 2nd floor flat with no garden I seem to have an ant infestation in my kitchen! It is driving me crazy and cant seem to get rid of them. I live in Portugal so maybe is more common over here but still dont want them in my house! I keep the kitchen as spotless as I can with a toddler in the house and never leave food out but it makes no difference. Have tried peppermint oil, vineger and cinneman but they dont work. Can I resort to chemicals or is that a absolutley no with a baby oin the house? Anyone ever used ant powder?? any ideas greatly appreciated!!

We got some ant traps (bait stations) off amazon seems to work brilliantly as the ants take poizen to the nest. The poizen is also contained in the trap so a toddler shouldn't be able to get to it without a lot of work

As you've already tried some other alternatives i recommend you use this ant spray and spray it from where ever they are comming in from that will get rid of the buggers for good.
