Switching to Maven just won't do it this time...

Was there supposed to be something in that picture?

'Cause it's broken.

Borax. Mixed with syrup. They take it back to the queen and feed her it. You can see the ants expanding until their abdomens become transparent.

Terro is very effective if you're not into making your own concoctions, but borax in syrup, as Campbell said, is really all you need. For areas where you don't want poison, corn starch is supposed to work. I've had mixed results with that though.

So, "no" to the nuclear bombardment?
I don't think poison and coffee are necessarily a great idea either.
Anyway, they seem to confine themselves to the powdered milk and sugar compartments, and I take neither.
Still...

Let's replace sugar with poison, that should do the trick.

If "the trick" is terminating all office employees - not in the administrative sense - then yes. Yes it will.

The specification didn't include that employees cannot be harmed.

I have an ant problem too, in my computer. And I have to go in to the ants nest, which is called "build.xml", to find out exactly what the ants are doing when they build my source code.
