Being in a sub-tropical area we get ant invasions periodically (as a matter of fact just got over one). We use a borax-based product called Terro; two days and they're gone.

Ant Problem? Terro = Ant Control Solutions

I use the liquid Terro myself - be warned, you're going to see a lot more ants at first when you put it down.

Few pests are harder to get rid of than ants once they've established themselves in your home. If you're tired of stumbling upon a swarm of ants on a regular basis, you'll need to make a concentrated effort to keep these uninvited guests away.

* Spray the trail with all purpose cleaner or a bleach solution, then wipe it up with a wet paper towel. Only do this if you can get them all, however, because spraying like a mad man might encourage them to split up, go home, and establish new colonies.
* For a less hands-on solution, vacuum them all up, then vacuum some talcum powder or diatomaceous earth to finish them off.
