A slight crazy topic...but oh well.

For some reason, I found a bunch of ants (some are dead now) in the never used dining room.

I looked for a few ways to kill them:

Vacuum (My mom doesn't want me using this method for some reason)
Hot water in paper towel (Sucks)
Solution in paper towl (Also Sucks)
Pencil + Good ol cup of chemicals from cleaning materials = Best way so far.

Ants are on wooden floor so that limits my choices.

Once my brother comes home, all ants shall be dead :wink:

Does using the sun and a magnifying glass work? I heard it burns them but ive never tried it.

kind of hard to get the sun in my house :wink:

I keep killing the ants but they keep coming back. Oh well, They'll be dead sooner or later.

2nd Best way to kill ants: Mix chemicals together and dump away!.

Best way to kill ants (OUTSIDE): THE FOOT!

I can confirm this works but that it's really damn hard to do. I used to do it when I was bored and little and the main problem is that ants don't stay still so its hard to actually get them in line with the beam.

another good method is to use a deoderant can and a cigarette lighter. Your own personal flame thrower.

Note: I don't condone making this as it may explode in your face and cause you lots of pain :wink:

You can poison a few pieces of bread, dry out the outside(not the center), and let the ants carry it into their nest. It would have to be a slow poison, and not too much of it(lest the carriers die before they reach the nest). Of course, the easiest way would be to buy some spray...
