Do you have sugar ants at your house? I feel like we may have built our house on the New York City of sugar ants. Last year I was able to minimize the amount of sugar ants in my house with ant traps, but I never completely got rid of them.
A species of ants nicknamed "crazy ants" are spreading across the U.S. They're mostly found in Texas, Florida, Mississippi, and Louisiana but they are spreadding.
These ants love the taste of pretty much any type of electical equipment.
