    Maybe if you refuse to shave them they'll get fed up and go somewhere else.

    Whatever you do, don't kill them/step on them etc... Live ants are drawn towards the scent of dead ants, and will come in larger groups to collect the dead ants carcasses. Tasty huh.... But yeh, squash 10 and 100 more will turn up. They generally only come to where there is food/crumbs... Mop any hard floors, and hoover carpeted rooms, make sure to lift all the furniture, perhaps attempt to move the fridge out to be able to clean under it, and empty your kitchen cupboards fully to check theres no opened food stuffs or leaking bottles etc..

    Normally I'd just say ant powder, but I'm not sure that tastest very nice for a 1 year old.

    You can get any positions that are in sealed containers, they have little holes for the ants to get in. The ant will come in and take the food/poison back to the nest ultimately killing the nest

    Best thing you can do is step on them. ALL of them. Quickly.
