Diatemacious earth. ( probably spelled wrong but if you copy and paste it into google it will come up correctly) It is this white powder, harmless to pets and anything bigger than an insect. People literally eat the stuff to kill parasites. It is like microscopic little knives that pierce the outer skeleton and dry the ant out. Sprinkle it around the entrance. ants walking through will get covered in it and then they will rub it off to other ants, and those ants rub it off into other ants... until it gets to the queen.
Oh yeah, I saw a video on YouTube about that stuff just a few days ago, coincidentally. Thanks for reminding me of that, I'll definitely look into it.
