Is anyone else bothered by invasions of weak coffee colored ants at night? They are going to drive me over the edge!!! As I sit at the computer working, it’s as if they’ve signed a pact to harass me. How can they suddenly appear out of nowhere? I’ve crawled on the floor and stared at the wall behind my desk, hoping to see them emerge from somewhere, but they must have scouts that alert them of my presence. None appear. The minute I take my seat again, one will go up the wall by the monitor. How can they appear out of thin air? My solution — admittedly not a good one — is to have a flip flop handy and smash any and all that I can and then sweep up the bodies in the morning. These are the type of ant that destroyed my photo copier and took up residence in the microwave (turning it on didn’t seem to eliminate them), clock radio (which came on in the middle of the night thanks to the pressure of the ants, their nest and their rice-like eggs — agh!), printer and pen holder (which wasn’t even warmed by an electric current!). Living with the unkown is maddening. WHERE IS THEIR NEST? WHAT ARE THEY DESTROYING?
Any suggestions as to how to get rid of these destructive pests would be greatly appreciated.
