Good Questions: How To Get Rid of Ants? Yuck!

(Image credit: Apartment Therapy)

Hello AT,

I am not a dirty person, yet the last few weeks our 5th story coop apartment has been infested with little brown ants. It is driving me crazy! They are even creeping out of my lap top computer… my 2 year old chases them around “Mommy! There’s one! Georgie found it!”

How, other than a few visits from an exterminator bug dude, can I get them out of my small (and clean, I swear) apartment?

Thanks, LK (PS–My cat won’t eat them, no matter how much I tell him they taste like chicken.)
