Ants have a varied diet. The search for food by the worker ant often takes them indoors. They eat sugar, fats and grains. Not surprisingly they are often found in larder and kitchens during the summer.
There are many ways to kill Ants but some are not as effective as others. Some products are fast acting and you see the ants die right before your eyes (i.e. boiling water and ant powder), but remember the Ants that you see, walking about above ground, are just the worker ants. The nest is the heart of the problem, it houses the Queen and 100’s of larvae and cocoons. You need to kill the nest to stop the problem. No nest, no ants, no problems.
