I am in need of a non toxic ant remedy. I tried sprinkling cinnamon along the edges of the kitchen counter and that hasn't worked. I have these tiny ants. I have never seen ants this tiny before. They are mostly in my kitchen. However when I am laying in bed at night one or two of these tiny ants will crawl on my lap top screen. Like they are attracted to the light in the key board and on the screen.

You can buy commercial ant traps, they look similar to combat trays for roaches.  And if they are getting into the cat food bowls, try putting the food bowls in small trays with water, this will keep the ants from getting to them and obviously don't allow stray cat food onto the floor.  Ants develop paths, so put the baited traps near these pathways if you can identify them.
