We have ants. This is not new. Twice a year, spring and fall, they invade.
The problem with sugar ants is that while they do go after food, simply keeping the kitchen clean and food sealed away does not get rid of them or keep them away. They take over. We have ants in the kitchen, the bedrooms, and the bathroom.
Plus, they stink like crazy when you kill them.
We haven’t called an exterminator before because of the dogs, but this year, they’re really getting to me, and I’ve found a place that claims to use pet friendly techniques.
