They're in my pants

Whilst making a bottle for His Highness the Baby I noticed a few mini-ants running around the surface. It was 3 am so I didn't want to pay much attention to them.

At 8 am when I made Her Holiness's coffee I noticed them again, this time around the sugar bowl.

Normally I'd just call the exterminator and have them chemically removed but we're moving house in less than a month and I don't want to spend the money.

So my question to you, dear reader, is;

Short of hiring an anteater from the local menagerie, do you have any cheap and easy ways to abate the flow of ants into an apartment?

Answers in the Comments please.

  1. You can pick up this special chalk from the hardware store. Assuming you know where the ants are coming from, all you have to do is draw a line or two at the ants' approach and they magically fall dead when they get too close to it. The chalk has some chemical in it that kills ants dead on the spot. Very cool. Not to be taken...
