Usually found marching along a kitchen sink, the tile near a baseboard, or outside on the porch by your welcome mat (some welcome!), ants are tiny and persistent home invaders. Sure, you can wipe away a trail of ants with a paper towel, or hose them down if they're outside, but if you don't pursue a more "perman-ant" solution, you're sure to endure subsequent infestations. Luckily, getting rid of ants for good doesn't have to be a big deal, and it doesn't have to involve exterminators and harsh chemicals. Your cupboard is very likely already stocked with a number of environmentally safe, pet- and child-friendly products that you can use to get rid of these pesky visitors.
