How To Rid Of Ants and A Giveaway

Here in Albuquerque,New Mexico I think our houses are built on a big ant nest. No matter how clean you keep your house,the ants come in. Every summer I dread ants. I go to bed and wake up to ants,sometimes in my kitchen and other times somewhere else in the house. I have tried many different sprays to get rid of the ants but they only work for a short time. I discovered a new product called Combat Source Kill Max Ant Gel and Baits. Unlike sprays that kill only the ants it sprays Combat Source Kill Max has a chemical called Fipronila fast-acting active ingredient that's speed is still slow enough for the ants to ingest it and take it back to the colony to feed to all the ants including the queen. The entire colony is killed. That means no more ants.

The Combat Source Kill Max baits facts are:

-Kills ants without messy residure and without insecticide odors
-Quick kill formula
-Destroys the queen and the entire colony
-Provides long lasting any killing power
The baits are great for places where ants like to visit like under the sink.
The Combat Source Kill Max Ant Gel facts are:

-First specially formulated ant gel
-Preferred food form for ants
-Fast killing formula
-Works within hours and up to 1 month
-Kills ants and the colony
You simply place the gel near ant trails and the ants take it back to all the ants.
This stuff works! The other day I woke up to ants on my counter. I follow the trail and it was on the top of the door frame. I put some of the gel there and tons of ants came out to eat the gel. I have not seen the ants since then.
Now for the fun part :
