Little B*tches!

I still have the Ants. Emily overheard me calling them Little Bitches the other day. She found that pretty hilarious. I can't seem to get rid of them. They seem to like my bleach now. They also have decided to get into Riley's food bowl (only hers, they leave Bandit & Dakota, as well as the kitties alone, how strange).
One bit me which surprised me because they are just the little black ants. I don't think I have ever been bit before. Thank God we don't have Texas Fire Ants here in Indy!

I need helpful hints!!!PLEASE!!!!!! Any suggestions?
Remember I want non-poisonous because of the pets.

In the past, we have had a serious ant problem in our kitchen. This year they have not reappeared - a very pleasant surprise.

Recently, I planted a cherry tree about 20 feet outside - away from the kitchen. The sod taken from where the cherry tree was planted was placed over a bare spot also about 20 feet from the kitchen. Our bird bath was placed on top of all of that. Today, as I was trimming the area around the bird bath, I found a huge ant colony - HUGE. They aren't hurting anything and they are incredibly festinating to watch. I can't help but wonder if the ants are staying out of our kitchen because of the bird bath on the sod on of the bare spot. - Brutus
