    Check out the greenhouse pests bit as there has been some discussion about ants there before. I think a pet anteater was the best solution :D

    Cheap method: a bowl full of boiling water. A couple of years ago I was washing up at my mum's and noticed a black carpet moving across the patio towards the door. Swift removal of dishes and flung the whole bowlful on them. Took a couple more bowlsful to get rid of the lot, but it worked. These beggars had wings too.
