Since I live in a wee village, I am, always plagued by flies who come in with the dogs. Last night I noticed two dead flies on the kitchen window sill but they were gone this morning.
I killed a fly this morning and left it there again because my bath as filling. When I went back just now, two ants were busily demolishing it and very little was left. The ants came in because I had spilled some sugar last week.
I heard that cinnamon helps. Not sure if you can spread cinnamon there but it is a natural solution. Baking soda apparently helps too. I have a cat and he likes to chase and eat them. :-)
Oops, I didn't realize you want to keep them.

I made a batch of cookies one Saturday to take to Church Sunday. I left them on the counter overnight. I got up in the morning to find them covered with ants .I was not happy about this turn of events .
ants upset me so much. every time i see them i immediately have to pee and want to run away screaming, which i know is weird reaction. ha. i joke but i'm totally serious when i say i'd rather have a bed full of snakes than see one ant in my house!
that said- if they were at least helpful like yours maybe it wouldn't be so bad. haha.
