Not only what Zip said, but orange oil is a powerful organic solvent used in paint strippers, dewaxers, soot removal, and other hard to handle problems. It will dissolve the paint on your walls and baseboards, and I would think it would be hard on kitchen flooring (other than ceramic tile).
When I had sweet ants in my kitchen, I got this recipe that really worked. It was a quarter cup of sugar, quarter cup of molasses, and a teaspoon of bread yeast. Mix all that up and spread blobs of it on cardboard pieces dropped where the ants can get it. They didn't seem to want to venture up on to the cardboard the first day or two but after that it looked like cattle at a feed trough. The next day the goo was smaller and smaller until it was gone. There were fewer and fewer ants each day, too. I had so many ants I had to refill the cardboard before all the ants were gone.
I don't know how it works. There are a couple things that come to mind. One is that the yeast is carried back to the ant hill where it starts to grow and consume the ant's food. Or it could infect the ants with something. Or it could infect the ant's food with something. Or it could smell bad after a few days of growing. Or it could be a catalyst to support the growth of other bacteria or fungi that do one of the above. In any case, it worked on my ants.
If the ants don't eat sugar, like fire ants don't, they you're out of luck with this mix. If you know where the ant hill is, you might be able to dilute the mix in a gallon of dechlorinated water and drench the mound with it. Many times that even works against fire ants.
