We have ants in our kitchen all around our sink and cupboards with our dishes and cans of food. We have tried "Ant Hotels" and sprayed "Bug B Gone" outside around the perimeter of our house. The ants still keep coming. Can you make suggestions how to get rid of the ants?

Your first priority is to find out where they are coming from and if they have nested somewhere in the home. It is very difficult to control foraging ants. Below is a fact sheet which describes several tactics and several controls.http://www.extension.umn.edu/garden/insects/find/what-to-do-about-household-ants/
