Diatomaceous earth is non-toxic and will kill most bugs. It works by cutting them up. It's a good thing to sprinkle in and around an outhouse, too. But then you mostly have to be an Alaskan to appreciate that, LOL!
Are the ants coming into your house? If they are the big black ones, watch out, those are probably carpenter ants. I don't know where you are....if they are the teeny or middle sized black ones, they are probably searching for water.
