    Ant poison can be purchased at hardware store. It smells like shit but effective when sprayed along floor, corners, drains, just like pest control people spray their stuff in and out of the house.
    You only use a few drops and dilute it to a usable solution in a spray bottle.

    the main idea is not just to kill the ants but to destroy their nest as well when they bring the food back to consume ..

    Its up to you to find the nest..forumers cannot find where for you. If there's the nest, this poison can do the job. Ants nest could be deep below the house, more than you would think the obvious.
    Just like pest control services, its periodical maintenance thoughout the year. Did you think 1 treatment is a cure all?

    I've used these & they are rather effective in killing the ants colonies

    1) Borax - easily found in household cleaning aisle in US. Use warm water, add in sugar & borax. Soak in cotton balls & leave them near ants trail. Google on the use & portions needed.

    2) Raid insects gel. Works great, too. I've used this inside my house to kill those tiny, smelly ants. Didnt use it outside because it is not cost effective. For garden, I used borax.

    Go to those shoplot hardware store and ask for the ants powder. It comes in a silver packet costs about 1.50. Just sprinkle a little along the path of where the ants travel and sprinkle a bit more where the nest is. Don't have to pour a lot. After a few days, both the powder and the ants will disappear.
