    A pinch of boric acid and  teaspoon of sugar. mix with a little hot water to make a syrup and place it in a bottle cap along their path or near it. Add water occasionally and stir it up a bit. The Boric acid prevents the food that is gathered to grow with mold that the ants eat, so the colony dies. 

    Wipe the area invaded with cider vinegar, it helps deter the ants....

    Robergrist, and Benthere are both right, I'm adding, spray outside your windows too.
