Ethics and Decision Making in Education

When making ethical decisions in education consequensalism is often applied to the kinds of guides to action based theory of relativism. Philosophers and ethicists use the term teleogy, from Greek word telos, meaning end ( Beckner 2004 ). Consequentialism The term was first used for (1) a theory concerning responsibility, but is now commonly used for (2) a theory concerning right and wrong. (1) the view that an agent is equally responsible for the intended consequences of an act and its unintended but foreseen consequences ( Anscombe 1958).

Ethical theories that fall under the classification of consequentialism pose that the rightness or wrongness of any action must be viewed in terms of the consequences that the action produces. In other words, the consequences are generally viewed according to the extent that they serve some intrinsic good. The most common form of consequentialism is utilitarianism (social consequentialism) which proposes that one should act in such a way to produce the greatest good for the greatest number. Consequentialism is the name given to ethical theories that hold that moral right, wrong, and obligation depend solely on the value of the consequences (effects, results) of what we do. Ethical egoism states that moral right, wrong, and obligation depends solely on the value of the consequences for the agent (Brandt, 1959).

Utilitarianism (Lyon 1992) states that moral right, wrong, and obligation depend solely on the value of the consequences for everyone, including both the agent (thereby denying ethical altruism) and everyone else (thereby denying ethical egoism). Consequentialism says that we ought to do whatever maximizes good consequences. It doesn’t in itself matter what kind of thing we do. What matters is that we maximize good results. One popular kind of consequentialism is classical (hedonistic) utilitarianism. This view says that we ought always to do whatever maximizes the balance of pleasure over pain for everyone affected by our action. This view could be based on the golden rule, which leads us to be concerned about the happiness and misery of others. Or it could be based on God’s will, self-evident truths, or our own personal feelings.

Consequentialism’s basic idea is that the ethical status of an act depends on the value of its consequences. (Beckner, 2004). The concept of an act’s consequences is central to the theory. The first characteristic to note about this kind of consequentialism is that it will allow a wide range of states of affairs to count as consequences. Indeed any state of affairs that can properly be called an outcome of an act is one of that act’s consequences. An act’s outcomes are the states of affairs brought about by that act. So, for example, if an act fulfils a promise, the state of affairs of that promise’s being kept is an outcome of that act demands that you act so as to maximize, and the value of consequences in this broad sense. Taking such a broad view of consequences immediately makes available a potentially different set of responses to hypothetical examples.

On the other hand, the opposite of consequentialism is deontologism which ethical position claims that it is possible for us to identify a right act or a justified moral rule in other ways besides considering the goodness or badness of consequences. “The term denotology comes from the Greek words deon, meaning “duty”, and logos, meaning “logic”. With this system of thing, the focis of value is the act or kind of act,” (Pojman 2002, p.107). Deontological moral systems are characterized primarily by a focus upon adherence to independent moral rules or duties. Thus, in order to make the correct moral choices, we simply have to understand what our moral duties are and what correct rules exist which regulate those duties. When we follow our duty, we are behaving morally. When we fail to follow our duty, we are behaving immorally. Deontological moral systems also place some stress on the reasons why certain actions are performed. Thus, simply following the correct moral rules is often not sufficient – instead, we have to have the correct motivations. This would allow a person to not be considered immoral even though they have broken a moral rule, but only so long as they and obligations must be determined objectively and absolutely, not subjectively.

Some examples of deontological ethical theories include: divine command: one of the most common forms of deontological moral theories is those which derive their set of moral obligations from a deity. An action is morally correct whenever it is in agreement with the rules and duties established by God. Duty Theories: an action is morally right if it is in accord with some list of duties and obligations. Rights Theories is an action that is morally right if it adequately respects the rights which all humans (or at least all members of society) have. This is also sometimes referred to as Libertarianism, the political philosophy that people should be legally free to do whatever they wish so long as their actions do not impinge upon the rights of others. Contractarianism: an action is morally right if it is in accordance with the rules that rational moral agents would agree to observe upon entering into a social relationship (contract) for mutual benefits. Finally, the monistic deontology is when the action is morally right if it agrees with some single deontological principle which guides all other subsidiary principles.

Thus, McCain R. (1999) describes a mixed- consequentialism has the rational and ethically acceptable. To be rational is to advance the views to which one is committed; to be moral is to advance the views to which one ought to be committed. Mixed-consequentialism refers to moral decisions that may not depend on the consequences all of the time. Mixed-consequentialism involves the reasons for the rightness of actions in situations. Mixed-consequentialism is a combination of both consequentialism and deontologism and it only stands to reason that each approach has application in varying circumstances. “The specific situation and varying circumstances must be carefully considered and decisions adjusted accordingly”(Beckner, 2004, p. 151).

In sum, institutions are left with the perplexing thought which is should they make decisions that are only and solely connected to the results of the action or should institutions consider the virtues and character of the person making the decision. If institutions follow consequentialism entirely, then they can make any decision that augurs for the common good and has good consequences despite whether the decision is impelled by the individual or any specific concern for the individual who is making it. WE are separating the decision from the person.

The Secret You Need to Turn a Fling Into a Relationship

Have you met a great guy and want to turn a fling into a relationship? Are you frustrated by how much time it is taking for you to become a significant part of his life? Are you hoping that he will just realize that he wants to take the next step with you and share his intimate secrets with you, asking you for yours? Reading on will show you how to turn a fling into a relationship!

It may be simple to make a man want you sexually, but turning that sexual desire into emotional need can be far more difficult. You want him emotionally, so why doesn’t he want you? Is there something wrong with you? No!

It just takes men longer than women to form emotional connections. It’s not that he does not think you are compatible in that way; it is that he has not even thought about that prospect yet. Most women respond by trying to pull men along, forcing a bond to form, but they cannot, despite their best efforts, turn a fling into a relationship.

If he feels pressured to forge an intimate bond, then he may dig in his heels and shake his head. It may seem childish, but think about the last time a guy tried to seduce you almost before he knew your name. Gross! Sleazy, right? No one likes to feel pressured in matters of love!

So take your time, and put some brakes on the sexual flirtation. If a relationship becomes completely about sex, then it has no room to grow an emotional connection. So make some space for something more, but let him decide to fill it. Be like the cat in Homeward Bound. You know you want it, but say that you don’t (I don’t mean that literally – don’t lie to him).

Are you dishonest for toning down your emotional needs? No, you’re just being smart about achieving what you want. And besides, who would you be tricking? Once he starts to want the same thing as you do, then everyone walks home happy in the end.

One thing that may help will be to view your budding relationship like a love story (Think When Harry Met Sally, not Serendipity). You have the chance to observe a beautiful thing begin to grow. As a viewer, you may be on the edge of your seat screaming for the couple to realize they love each other, but you wouldn’t fast forward to the end! It would ruin the experience.

Also, you cannot expect to change the way that a man falls in love. Even if you are the one for him and he for you, he will take time to form an intimate connection. If you look at the way that guys form relationships with each other, you will realize that this is true.

So even though your heart may be screaming for a deeper connection, take a step back and breathe. It takes time and space to turn a fling into a relationship.

Born With The Moon In Scorpio

According to Astrology, the exact location of the moon during the time of your birth determines your emotional reaction to the world around you. While the astrological sun colors your outwardly aggressive actions, the moon dictates your inner, passive or receptive urges. The moon is your “female energy” – she represents the type of nurturing energy you project, and/or the type of mothering you received as a child. Today we will discuss the Moon in Scorpio.

The Scorpio Moon: Joy and Pain

The Moon is literally in its fall, or denouement, in this sign. For this reason, Scorpio Moon folks are known to grapple with themselves on the inside. They typically experience all emotions extremely, deeply and totally – ecstasy, sorrow, elation… and yes, their tempers, when provoked, can be explosive. To complicate matters, Scorpio Moon people regard their own emotions as a source of vulnerability and therefore try to keep their true feelings under wraps. So, it’s not surprising that while many Scorpio Moons are traveling this earth feeling everything very intensely, they’re also wearing this kind of detached look. After all, if they were to be found out, there would be very grave consequences indeed. What those consequences might be is anybody’s guess… but if the Scorpio Moon is the one doing the imagining, it’s sure to be quite catastrophic.

The Scorpio Moon, in a nutshell: intensity. Intense likes, intense dislikes, intense fascination, intense disgust… and yes, in keeping with the general Scorpio reputation, intense love affairs. This is a very black-and-white, all-or-nothing moon with extremely fixed notions about things. If you’re loved by a Scorpio Moon then you are loved fiercely, totally and completely; but if you’re despised by a Scorpio Moon, then you may as well not exist. And it’s quite possible in dealing with this turbulent moon native that both emotions may be directed at you at different points in this lifetime. If a Scorpio Moon perceives that you have slighted them in some way… better make good immediately, or run and hide until the mood passes, because in all likelihood, revenge is being plotted against YOUR head!

The Scorpio Moon: Offsetting the Drama With Private Relaxation

Scorpio Moon people tend to go through life acting on hunches, “reading between the lines” – picking up subtle nonverbal cues, moods, intentions, underlying messages and such. Indeed, someone with this moon placement may get a very different meaning from the same conversation heard by someone with a more literal and pragmatic mind. This is not only quite distracting to the moon native, but when they react to these perceptions it often leads to undesired consequences and drama. Thus, the irony of the Scorpio Moon; being consumed by the very internal composition one despises in himself, and attracting drama-infused situations as a direct result of trying to avoid them.

A troubled Scorpion Moon person should allow herself some distance from time to time… a private sanctuary where she can sort out her emotions, get a healthy perspective and then emerge from the “cocoon” with renewed inner peace and a higher purpose in mind. Indeed, reflection and meditation feels quite natural to this introspective moon native and is encouraged as a way to take the edge off and temper the extreme moods. A deeply sensitive soul, capable of great courage and strength… there is much room for psychological growth and wisdom to be gained with this lunar positioning.

The Scorpio Moon: A Powerful Force for Good OR Evil

As with any sign, there are both positives and negatives to the Scorpio Moon placement. The sign of Scorpio has been assigned two symbols- the Scorpion and the Eagle. The former, a covert creature who stealths along the ground; and the latter, a symbol of power and might, soaring into the high heavens. Lows and highs… the Scorpio Moon is quite familiar with both states of consciousness… more than most, in fact.

Spiritually evolved Scorpio Moon souls can (and should) harness the gift of their emotional intensity and move proverbial mountains with it. If a Scorpio Moon person is intrinsically good, then that goodness of spirit can manifest itself in divine ways… extreme compassion and generosity toward fellow man, great and unshakeable integrity, impeccably honest conduct in business and personal affairs, and a permanent seat on the side of righteousness and justice. An enlightened Scorpio Moon will pledge his whole self to any and every cause he deems important; profess his undying faith to his family, home, country; and even make the ultimate sacrifice in a lifelong promise to serve God. Yes, this moon placement is often found in religious leaders, as the spiritual aspect is heavily emphasized here.

Less evolved Scorpio moons, on the other hand, are not averse to using abject means to get what they want. The concentration of power in this sign placement has led many a wayward Scorpio lunar native down a dark and devious path of corruption. In direct contrast to their enlightened counterparts; illicit affairs, illegal and underhanded dealings, petty and deceitful behavior, psychological turmoil, and loyalty to no one but themselves are trademark signs of the afflicted Scorpio Moon. Again, this is all due to the fact that Scorpio is in the moon’s fall, thus making emotions feel uncomfortable, unnatural and all-encompassing. With the all-or-nothing theme at work, indeed this placement will produce some extreme results.

The Scorpio Moon and Sex

It has been said that sexual impulses drive the Scorpio Moon native moreso than other moon signs, perhaps because they radiate such passion and intensity that they’re forever in need of release. The Scorpio Moon is equated with transcendental lovemaking or “soul sex” in which the participants experience an exalted state of consciousness by way of the physical sex act itself. Clearly, while “sexual nirvana” is hardly a day-to-day occurrence, this moon person has been labeled as having an extra potential for such achievements. At the very least, this moon person admits to having a high sex drive, even allowing sex to affect his or her decisions at certain points in life.

The Scorpio Moon as a Nurturer

The Scorpio Moon Nurturer is fiercely protective and psychologically all-consuming. Scorpio Moon Mothers, or “Smothers” as they are sometimes known, must learn to temper their intensity. If the Scorpio lover is possessive in her affairs, the Scorpio mother is equally possessive of her children. It will be her ongoing challenge to “let go.” These moon natives must get a reign on that fretfulness that leads to strings of sleepless nights, and interfere less in the daily trials and tribulations of their young sons and daughters. Scorpio Moon Mothers must generally permit themselves to chill out, cool down and back off. An earth-sign or earth moon-sign partner can lend a comforting and grounding effect for the Scorpio nurturer who has let the worrying get out of hand yet again.

Other signature themes and preoccupations of the Scorpio Moon: secrets, mysteries, severity, psychology, power, control, passion, revenge, obsession, loyalty, sex, depth of feeling, ethics, spirituality, solitude, death. No, the Scorpio moon is surely not made of green cheese, but rather some of the most powerful facets of human existence. This lunar native must learn to embrace the reality of his or her own emotions as opposed to running or hiding from them. If the Scorpio Moon person can navigate his or her own spirit to a higher and more exalted place, he will recognize the potential for complete and total happines that lies within himself… and the transformation will be powerful for certain.

Tips and Strategies For Wits & Wagers 2nd Edition Board Game

by sinnga kilam 0 Comments

If you are looking for a different type of family board game, I’m going to share one with you that you might not have heard of. Maybe I’m just not “with it” but I just discovered this game this past Christmas when I was searching for a family type game that would be fun for adults, yet easy enough for an 8 year old kid.

The name of the game is Wits and Wagers by the maker North Star Games. They are known for making games that are quick to learn, that keep all players involved all the time, and for keeping the games short (about 20 minutes).

Here’s a quick introduction.

Basically everyone contributes a numerical answer, which are then spread across the board with corresponding payout odds for each answer. All players then have 30 seconds to place a wager on the answer they feel is correct (or closest to without going over). Seven rounds are played to complete one game. The person with the most chips wins.

Strategy 1: If you don’t have the slightest clue as to what the answer might be, ride with the person you think probably knows the answer. In other words, place your bets where that person placed his/her bet(s). If it is a football question, copy the person who you think is knowledgeable in football.

Strategy 2: With strategy 1 in mind, you can spurt out a subtle bluff when the question is read. For example, if the question asks, “What percentage of American’s pay their credit card bill in full?” You can blurt out, “Ohhhhh, I just read about that last week….” even though you have no clue what the answer is. You then bet heavily on your answer to lure other players to ride with you but at the last minute, move your chips to the answer you think is correct. Hopefully they had bet heavily and lose a bunch of their chips.

Strategy 3: Similar to strategy 2, if you are knowledgeable in a certain subject and the other players know that, purposely submit the wrong answer and, again, bet heavily on your answer to lure others in. Move your chips at the last minute.

Common Sense Strategy: Know how many chips each player has at the ending part of the game. If you are the chip leader and the (current) second place player cannot catch up with you even if he/she bet all their chips and won, do not risk your stack of chips. In other words, do not risk more than necessary (this is a GREAT lesson applicable in life as well).

Tip: Write your name on your (erasable) white board so players know who to return the boards to (the boards are color coded but names are easier to remember).

Tip: Use a count down timer that beeps instead of the sand timer that’s included in the game. Usually everyone is so involved in the game that no one watches the timer.

Tip: If you want to stir up a discussion on a particular subject or event, create your own (7) questions that are hard to guess exactly, but ones that the group might have some idea about. This is a sneaky way for the host to surface his/her agenda.

Wits & Wagers 2nd Edition appeals to people who like games that require knowledge, to people who like gambling, and to people who like the party/social type of games.

Does Stephen Hobbs' Lazy Way to Buy and Sell Cars Really Work?

When the economic climate is in a state of recession and unemployment is rising, it only makes sense to starting looking for an at home business. If you have your own business, you don’t have to depend upon having an employer to earn money. You can be your own boss and set your own hours.

And one business that is not going away anytime soon is the used car business. People have been making money buying and selling cars ever since the automobile was invented. The used car business is a ready made market with plenty of demand for low cost, reliable transportation. In today’s modern society, transportation is a must, no matter how you look at it. People need transportation. This means there’s always going to be an in-demand market for cars. And having a business where there is a definite market is the first thing you look for when considering running your own business.

One way to earn money selling used cars is outlined in Stephen Hobbs’ e-book The Lazy Way to Buy and Sell Cars for Profit. But, does his method of marketing really work? How difficult is it to buy and sell cars for profit? Do you need a license, and can you do this out of your home?

The answer to these questions – and many more – are all contained in Stephen’s e-book. In the book Stephen sets out to destroy some of the myths around this business that has kept others from even attempting it. You can set up a profitable home-based business without having to obtain a dealer’s license.

“You don’t need to get a car dealers license unless you want to and getting one suits what you want to do with this,” Stephen points out. He suggests that you start out small. And he reveals a completely legal way for you to buy and sell cars for profit while retaining all the advantages of having a car dealers license, yet without any of the disadvantages. It’s all up to you how you want to work it.

Once you know how to deal with sellers of used cars, you can get the price you want. Stephen’s book teaches you the secrets of negotiation. He also teaches you which cars to look for in the cars you buy and which to leave on a sellers lot. Armed with this knowledge, you will soon become an expert on what cars are in demand and will sell for a premium profit, and what cars to stay away from. Having this knowledge is key to becoming successful in this business.

If you are looking for a business that you can be up and running with in a relatively short time period, buying and selling cars is something you will want to seriously consider. With over 150 pages of no-fluff realistic content, Stephen’s book will help shorten the time frame between buying your first used car and closing a sale with a ready-made buyer. You will soon learn what others have already learned, that “consistent demand makes this the perfect recession proof business.”

Online Vs Offline SEO: Which Is Best for Your Business?

If you ask anyone who works in the SEO industry what optimisation means and what its purpose is, they’ll probably be able to give you a quick, if not necessarily straightforward answer. The aim is clearly to improve the status of your business website /brand on the results pages of search engines: the higher the ranking, the more likely users will be attracted to your services. Now ask those very same people how to best achieve this and the waters start to get a little muddier.

Some SEO experts favour on-page, or on-line optimisation techniques, others prefer off-page. The majority, you would hope, would recommend a combination of the two strategies. If it could just be left at that, the world would be a simpler place. However, SEO professionals don’t seem to do ‘simple’. They’ll start telling you about the importance of ‘organic’ marketing, ‘Meta tag’ settings and other weird and wonderful sounding concepts that you really ‘must’ use. Is it any wonder we mere mortals get confused? What do any of these terms actually mean? Well, hopefully after you’ve read this article the waters may become a little clearer.

On-page SEO refers to the optimisation of the pages that make up your actual business website. This is the more technical aspect of the optimisation process and refers to those factors that have an effect on website or webpage listings in natural search results: these factors are controlled by you or by the coding on your web pages. Any optimisation will focus on the keywords that make up the content or the copy on your web site. It will also look at areas like HTML coding, Meta tags, unique content, website design and layout. Essentially on-page optimisation is all about tweaking all the technical bits and bobs that lurk beneath the surface, so that both search engines and ordinary users are given the precise information they’re looking for: the better and more accurate the results, then the greater the traffic.

Offline SEO refers to the optimisation of the pages away from your website. They are referred to as ‘off-page’ because they are not controlled by you or by the coding on your website. Off-page optimisation techniques focus predominantly on areas like link building, directory and article submission, blog posting and forum posting. The purpose of offline optimisation is to maximise all the links that come off your website pages to encourage a higher placing in the search engine results.

So which is best?   

It won’t surprise you to learn that there isn’t a simple answer to this. Well, there wouldn’t be, would there? Each has its own merits and limitations. It’s all a matter of horses for courses: it depends on what your ultimate goal is and how quickly you expect to see the results.

Traditionally on-page optimisation will produce better long-term results, but these can take time.  If your business aim is to get yourself established on the likes of Google and Bing or other high-ranking search engines, then you’ll have to be prepared to be patient. Building a reputation and creating top-notch, relevant content takes time and effort. Those SEO companies and business who aren’t prepared to bide their time will have to explore other avenues to get the quick fixes they desire.

Off-page optimisation can and often does produce quicker and more-measurable results, but that can come at a price. It’s all predominantly about link building. If your website is able to link to high-profile, respected websites, then your ranking can receive an immediate boost just through the power of positive association. Off-page SEO can give your business website this boost, a sort of kick start if you’d prefer, but it can’t necessarily sustain it for the longer term. If your aim is sustainability, then it’s probably much wiser to use a combination of both optimisation strategies.

Everybody seems to want the quick fix nowadays: I suppose it’s a direct consequence of living in a world where we all appear to demand instant gratification. However, some things are still worth waiting for: when they eventually come, you appreciate them all the more. Internet marketing strategists will tell you that the only way for a website to achieve sustainable organic growth is by adopting a holistic marketing strategy, and do you know what? I think they’re probably right.

How to Make Him Regret Losing You and Desperate For Another Chance

by sinnga kilam 0 Comments

Is it possible to make a guy regret losing you? Yes, it is, and you don’t even have to be mean or vindictive about it. If you try to use revenge as a way to make him regret losing you, then it will only come around to bite you in the end. If you’re still madly in love with your man even though he dumped you or if he did something that forced your hand and you dumped him, then there are ways to get him begging you to take him back. Here’s how you can make him think about you constantly and make him desperately want you.

The first thing you will need to do is break off contact for a while. This should usually be a period of 2-3 weeks. During this time you won’t call, text, or email your man, and if he tries to contact you, then you simply don’t reply or you reply by telling him you think it’s best if you both have some space right now. If you are forced to see him because you have the same classes, the same job, or hang out in the same places, then be polite and friendly, but don’t get into any long conversations.

Breaking off contact is the first step in making a guy regret losing you because you need to make him miss you. If you aren’t talking to him, then it will drive him crazy thinking about where you might be and what you might be doing. You’ll be on his mind constantly and he’ll miss every single minute he’s not with you.

You need to be strong about the no contact rule because if you text him back, call him, email him, or leave messages on his Facebook and MySpace pages, then he can’t really miss you because you’re still around. Also, never approach him if you’re emotionally distraught. You want to remain strong and confident if you want to make him regret losing you and desperate to get you back. Seeing that you are OK and happy without him will throw him for a loop and make him totally desire you again.

If he dumped you, then he may think that he holds all the power in the relationship. He probably expects you to be sad, lonely, and depressed without him. Make him desire you by going out with friends and having fun. Don’t sit around being sad and depressed. He won’t be able to stand the thought of you being out with other people having fun and being happy. When he starts to feel like he can’t have you, that’s when he’ll start wanting you again.

After a while as he starts to regret losing you, he will try to make contact, but don’t give in just yet. If you decide to pick up the phone, then be friendly, but keep conversations short. Maintain the power dynamic in your favor by being the one to end phone calls first. To make a guy regret losing you, you need to make him crazy thinking about you and what he needs to do to get you back. When he wants to talk to you or hang out, and you only give him a little bit of your time, then he will keep craving you more and more because he’s not getting enough of you.

When things get to that stage, you’ll have total control of the situation.

It is never fun to find that you have an infestation of ants around or in your home. Ants are hard to get rid of. They are very social beings. They live in large nesting colonies. Like bees, the colony has a queen and a lot of workers who take care of her. She is the only one who lays eggs.

When the worker ants are foraging, they leave a pheromone trail to alert their tribe that they have located a food source. There are lots of things ants will eat, including wood, human food, plants, and even animal matter.

What can you do when you find that you have a problem with ants, especially inside your home?

Locate the Nest

If you suspect that the ants are nesting somewhere inside your home, you really need to find the nest and get rid of it. If you see ants all year round foraging in your kitchen, it is likely they are living inside. Ants will nest by burrowing into wood. The nest may be inside a wall or in an attic. If you can find the nest, it is likely that you will have to use a chemical pesticide to get rid of it.

Seal Openings

If the ants are coming inside during warmer weather, it is a good measure to seal as many entry points as possible on the exterior of your home. Ants will tend to crawl in at the bottom of wall siding, through pipe penetrations, and where cables enter the home. They will also use plants to climb up to window sills. Caulking and sealing any cracks and holes is a good idea.

Be Sanitary and Cautious

Cleanliness is one of your best defenses against ants. Wipe down countertops, clean up dirty dishes, and keep garbage covered. Don’t leave food out, especially sweet food. Place grains, other starches, sugar, and any sweet syrup or honey in tightly sealed containers.

Diatomaceous Earth

You can safely use powdered, food-grade diatomaceous earth along the perimeter of your kitchen counters. This literally rips through the exoskeletons of the ants and dries them out. The ones who walk through it will eventually die. This does not get rid of the queen who stays home all day.

Use Bait

The queen must go. Otherwise, the workers are going to keep feeding her and she will continue to lay eggs. Store bought bait traps aren’t really that effective. There are sweet gel baits that you can place drops of along baseboards and in corners of counters. These drops will attract the ants. They will eat the bait and take it back to their queen. She will in turn eat it and, hopefully, that will put a stop to the colony. You can also make your own bait.

Be Diligent

As mentioned above, ants are very hard to get rid of. You must be diligent about keeping after the infestation. In very bad cases, you may need to hire a professional exterminator. It might get discouraging but don’t give up because it will only get worse if you do.
