Sugar ants are one of the most common pests here in the Pacific Northwest. If you have ever noticed little black ants in your kitchen swarming every sweet thing that your kids leave behind, it is likely that you have a sugar ant infestation. On top of being the most common pest in the area, they are also one of the hardest to exterminate. The more you try to kill these annoying little ants with store-bought repellents the more they’ll multiply and spread out! Learn how to protect your food in order to prevent sugar ants from staying for dinner.
