Ants in my sink. Scattered ants on my desk.

Small mercy: so far, there are no ants in my pants. But I'm going to shake them out before I put them on.

Terro ant baits. For reals. Ain't worth your time otherwise.

Sorry to hear that they've come back. Icky little bastards.

They're those damn Argentine ants, probably. The Terro bait traps (little self-contained plastic things that you snip to make the liquid bait available) work really really well. They come six to a box; scatter half a dozen around the areas where you see the ants coming in (you can often track them back to a crevice or something like that) and just keep crumbs etc under control. After about three days you should see many fewer ants. Replace the traps with fresh ones after a week or so.

Careful not to jiggle them too much, the stuff inside is sticky and a pain to clean up.

They're back in our kitchen, too. Great BIG ones.

I don't know what you've tried before, but when I had the beginnings of an ant invasion in my old apartment, I had great success with lemon lysol. I found where I thought they were getting in and stuffed cotton balls soaked in lysol everywhere I could.
