Tiny Ants (Not Red but They Bite!)

Do the organic pesticides mentioned for fire ants work on any type of ants? These tiny brown ants build underground in garden and bite on skin contact! Thank you!

Spinosad is a broad-spectrum organic pesticide that kills most types of insects, and it should work against any ants. D-limonene is another option- it can kill most insects if it directly contacts them, and repels ants even if they're not in direct contact with it.
