Help Please – Attacked by Ants!!

Are there any Digamites out there suffering, as I am, with an invasion of ants in the house?  There are large ones and small ones in the kitchen and they are appearing from behind kitchen units, floor tiles and other places.  I have tried to track them back but can’t find any nests as they just seem to appear from nowhere. I have dogs and cats so didn’t want to use insecticides, also not a good idea in the kitchen with food, but I have tried all the recommended suggestions from the internet. e.g. anti bacterial spray, lemon juice, pepper, talc, chalk lines etc, some of which kill the ants but more just appear after that.

Any tried and tested suggestions would be most welcome.

We would greatly appreciate if payment was made before the journey.

The price?  €12pp includes a €1 gratuity for the driver.  Children under 12 can join us for 1/2 price.   Still the best value on the coast!
Early booking is recommended if you like a particular place, as seat numbers are allocated on a first come, first served basis.  Plenty to see in Gibraltar apart from the shopping!
