I have used sucessfully, but without a shred of scienctific evidence,
cucumber peel to ward off ants.  This works best if you can place the
peel by the source of the little buggers, which may be hard to
pinpoint.  In the kitchen, we just put a few pieces around the
baseboards and sink and it works like a charm.

Good luck.
