I can understand you're wanting to control ants, but did you know that spiders feast on all kinds of insects and help keep your yard and garden from being overwhelmed with insect pests? You can control ants with boric acid baits. They're non toxic and won't harm spider. If you'd rather spray your foundation to keep insects and spiders at bay, you can use a product like Ortho? Home Defense MAX?. Spray according to label directions. Best wishes with your project.
