Are they ant hills or just ants? For ant hills, I’ve always read that putting rice on/in the hill will kill the ants. It’s something about the rice will make the ants explode.

Good luck! You could alwyas call an exterminator!

I recently found an ant hill in my backyard.  I bought some sort of ant hill killer at Target.  I haven’t gotten a chance to try it yet.

Make sure to use something that will kill the ants not just repel them. If you repel the ants they will just relocate to another part of the yard. When i had ants indoors we used traps containing peanut butter and borax. They took it back to their families and it killed the colony. Apparently products with chrysanthenum dust also kill bugs but are harmless to pets and people.
