Ive been having an awful problem with ants in
my kitchen this summer. Ive tried everything.
Ive sprayed and set ant traps but the little
creepy crawlers still wont go away. Just the
other day I bought some blueberry muffins and set
them on my kitchen counter for my breakfast the next
day and they were still in the plastic container.
Somehow the ants still managed to crawl into the container
and eat my blueberry muffins. It made me so mad I
screamed and woke up my husband who was still sleeping.
I didnt want him to wake up first because I
knew my fat guy would probably eat my muffins. He
didnt get- em but the ants did. Do you have
any remedies for my ant problem?

Aww. Let the little guys eat when theyre hungry.
I once had an ant colony and they are very intelligent.
Besides that, ants lived alongside the dinosaurs.
Queen ants can live a long time. The oldest recorded
age of an ant is an amazing 30 years! Wipe your problem
areas with white vinegar and they will flee. Enjoy
