Is there a DIY solution for getting rid of ants, or do I need an exterminator?

In my experience, exterminator's are allowed to have more potent chemicals and of course more effective delivery systems. I have fixed ant and even termite problems myself but it really only works if you catch it early and the problem isn't too bad yet. With ants, main thing is to eliminate the food source and buy an ant killer. You will definitely want to figure out what kind of ants they are, since some kinds have different pesticides . I just called a local exterminator and chatted with the hardware store guy to see what they recommended.
