Some years we’ve have problems with flying ants; every summer we have problems with regular ones that like to feast on our honey and jelly in the cupboards or anything on the counter. We use ant poison, ant traps, eucalyptus oil and the vaccuum cleaner to combat them.
We used to get the little black ants in our other place. Ew. I hated living there! We read that the ants, instead of having one colony with one queen, would be several different colonies living in the same area and not fighting like most other ants do.
These little guys are also the reason we have no more horny toads 😥 I loved those little guys and I miss them!
Ants killed my former biology teacher’s tarantula he kept in the classroom. He had told the school to seal off the windows a long time ago because the ants could get in, and they didn’t listen. But when they had to shell out to pay for a brand new tarantula, they listened!
