Great site! (And thanks for the very useful info).

My wife SCREAMS everytime she sees an ant. It is making me a nervous wreck! Imagine what happened when she opened the dishwasher to find dozens of ants walking around? I kneeled down in front of the machine and squished each one I could find with my thumb. They keep coming back each day. I too do not like to use insecticides, although I dusted the entire kitchen with Boric acid and put invisible barrier granuales around the perimeter of the house. I looked in the basement various times under the kitchen. I never see any ants in the basement, and everything seems to be rather dry. So, how to I locate the colony getting to the dishwasher? How do they get in in the first place? Thanks again!

Mike
