The ants finally attacked the entire bag of cat food. This is the first time this has happened. I did a lot of vacuuming and had to vacuum some of the cat food out of the bag, because there were so many ants inside. I've rolled up the top and placed the bag on top of the refrigerator. The ants must be killed.

So, I have created a trap as suggested at the Berkeley Parents Network: Getting Rid of Ants. I took some cat food, dumped it into a cardboard box (one of the leftovers from the GFCI outlets) and then dumped a bunch of boric acid powder into it as well. I closed this inside the closet, so the cats can't get to it. Hopefully the ants will start munching on the cat food and bringing back the poison to their nest. I'll have to leave it there for a long time, so enough generations of ants from under the house are killed.
