Hampton Roads' Biggest "Born & Raised" Know-It-All!

The Downtowner Answerman

Dear Downtowner Answerman,

I’ve been having an awful problem with ants in my kitchen this summer. I’ve tried everything. I’ve sprayed and set ant traps but the little creepy crawlers still won’t 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 didn’t want him to wake up first because I knew my fat guy would probably eat my muffins. He didn’t get- em but the ants did. Do you have any remedies for my ant problem?
-- Elvira, Boush Street

Dear Elvira,

Aww. Let the little guys eat when they’re 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 your muffins.
