Well, the vinegar spray seems to work! Love it. However I'm just sending them away from my counters and to somewhere else right? So I've added another layer...Ortho makes a liquid ant poison. It's sick but I get a tiny bit of satisfaction when I see those little buggers lined up for a sip.
Hopefully this added to my more natural approach will finish them off before the snow melts and and the mice come in...oof. That's for another day of learning!
