How do you get rid of persistant ants?

Home More advice Home & Garden

We live in a second story condo, and we have a recurring ant problem. When they come, it is an army of them coming up the building, through the edge of a window or door and marching to some random thing that often I wouldn't have thought they'd want. We keep things clean, and whenever we find something new they like we make sure to clean it, keep it unavailable, etc. They go for the toaster over, the dog's dish, water bowl, water in the sink, etc.

We've tried various different types of ant traps, and spray the edges of doors and windows with raid or similar products but they keep coming back.

Any other suggestions?
