Use equal parts baking soda and powdered sugar, put in a lid-like a coffee can lid and put near the ants trails. They love sugar and will haul it back to their nests, the baking soda when digested will cause their stomach to explode. Using this rather than a poison is safe if you have pets or small children in your household.
Look around for what's attracting them. They usually are looking for wet wood so look for leaks and make repairs.
