|We've never had tiny ants -- we've had little ants. What happened a few years back -- the ants were outside, going in a long convoy from one side of my deck underneath it, out on the other side, up the side of the house and across the clothesline out to who knows where. So I sprayed them. Bad mistake! Because I interrupted their ant highway, they made a new highway, through my kitchen! Last year I left their outside highway alone and I didn't have any ant highways in the kitchen.
So, I'm thinking the other apartments in your condo probably spray so the ants are using your apartment. Can you backtrack and see where they're coming in? Under doors or around water pipes? I think my ants were coming up around the sink's water pipes and were only in the kitchen. But they were very pesty there. I couldn't feed the cats or dog in the kitchen; the ants would smell the food. I had to keep my sugar bowl in the frig but mainly they went for meat. I couldn't leave a dirty dish in the sink or food on the counters, it would really attract them.
What I used is a spray called Orange Guard. I bought it at Ace Hardware, but I see it all over the internet.
I t can be used around food, humans and pets. I lightly sprayed it under the sink around the pipes and along my countertops' backsplash and the wall where the ants were squeezing through. It has a nice orange smell. I sprayed about once a day or if I saw an ant.
