Borax and sugar water work, but you only attract more ants from outside the structure if you don't soak the entire foundation perimeter of the house with a borax and water solution. The borax eats holes in the chitin exoskeleton of the ants crossing the barrier, killing them. The ants inside the structure feed on the borax and sugar water, take it back to their nests inside the structure and feed it to the young. It takes about six weeks as the young hatch out and ingest the poison. You have to renew the barrier around the foundation every three weeks. After you have killed all the ants inside, you just need to keep putting a borax and water solution on the perimeter every three weeks to keep ants out. I use a watering can and a 5% solution. It works, but failing to persevere is what makes it appear that it does not.
