How to get rid of some house ants
Sugar ants (Camponotus consobrinus)
Just as the name suggests, sugar ants have an affinity for sweet substances found in food, such as sugar, honey, or other sweet foods commonly consumed by humans such as bread and cakes. This type of house ant does not sting humans and causes spots and itching like the fire ants – but finding sugar ants in the kitchen or dining area can be very annoying if they are left alone and uncontrolled.
How to get rid of sugar ants
• Clean spills and food scraps regularly – this is done so as not to invite sugar ants to come.
• Consume sugary foods and drinks only in the kitchen or dining area – this will allow you to reduce the possibility of crumbs or spills from the sugary substances that are the favorite food of this type of sugar ant.
• Putting food in a tightly closed container – do this habit, especially on types of foods that contain sweet, such as sugar, syrup, or honey.
• Patch any cracks and crevices around your home area – make sure that there are no cracks or cracks in your home that sugar ants can use as access to your home.
