So, tonight, I;m making dinner and see something move, so I look over, and it's an ant. OK, no bigie, the next second, there's a ton, then back down to a few. They seemed to circle from the corner of the counter, then to the window and back. My boyfriend thinks they're squeezing in fromt he window, so I closed the window, and the ones in the house the cat is currently taking care of. I think they might be coming from by the counter. I hope it's not the window, since it's already gotten to 80 degrees this spring, and I don't want to think of cooking during the summer without windows open. My boyfriend wants to get the raid ant traps, but I really have no experiance with ants. Do they pass on the same baddies as other household pests? Do a few mean there's more? not sure if one sighting is enough to alert the landlord about. These ones were about a half inch long, and black.
