We live in California in the San Fernando Valley, and we can't get rid of these ants. I don't know what to use, because I have a dog, and three guinea pigs. They are in our kitchen, back yard, and nothing seems to be working. I've used Windex, Rade, and I'm out of ideas. Help!!! I know, they aren't red ants, because they don't sting. I'm blind, so I can't see them, but, I'm definitely feeling them. Thanks.
