How do you get rid of flying ants?

For the past two weeks I have been finding dead flying ants in my kitchen and bathroom. I live in a condo with an attic, I have searched but cannot find the colony, what do you recommend to get rid of them?

Answer:

First off you should make sure they are definitely swarming ants and not swarming termites, which are sometimes confused with swarming ants.  If they are ants, then it is very hard to get rid of the problem until they stop swarming on their own unless you know where they are getting in.  You can treat all baseboards, cracks and crevices, window sills, and other areas with a residual aerosol to try to kill the ants as they are entering the bathrooms, but other than that there are not many options if you have no idea where they are getting in.  We would recommend D-Force HPX Aerosol to use around the baseboards and other areas.
