Started seeing these around my office and some in the kitchen. Seems like an odd time of year for them to pop up. Anyone else noticing these?
I do have some ant baits around and I do see that they're working. Do they lose their effectiveness after awhile? Maybe I need to put some fresh ones out.
perhaps @author might have an idea.
We’re noticing them also. Used a new trap last year, but forget its name. Will post back when I find it.
FWIW, I usually just clean up thoroughly wherever I see ants, using my good basic surface cleaners to remove all dust and grease. Then I wipe every surface down with a cloth moistened with a mix of water, borax and either oil of cloves or eucalyptus (both quite sparing as they're strong scents). Go as far back along the trail as your can to a wall.
The oils confuse the ants' 'radar', overwhelming them so they can't communicate and lose their way. Easier to spot lone stragglers and kill them so you're safe for months. I had an invasion just after New Year.
I think it's the mild weather. I've noticed some tiny flying insects (maybe gnats?) in the house, which is unusual this time of year.
