In order to keep the ants away you may use vinegar solution or a disinfection cleaner to mop the floors,  working surfaces in your kitchen and the bathroom. The other method is to draw a chalk circle around the place they come from, but you would need to locate their trail accurately for that. Ants are no fans of strong smells — use cinnamon, garlic, lemon and peppermint oil to make them avoid your smelly home.
Block every possible entryway you may find: crevices and holes are perfect places for ants’ nesting and travelling. Seal your windows and doors with caulk and pour some dish soap around them as an extra barrier.
