They have continued to find new sources of food and I have let them have it. I put the ant bait packages around different places in my kitchen and discovered that the ants are going into the bait traps and getting the poisoned food to take back to the nest. Hopefully, this will pay off in the long run. Having all my food in the refrigerator is not entirely convenient. And I am running out of sealed containers to put open packages of cookies, etc.

This is just a short update about what is going on with the ant invasion. The ants are still here however there are not as many of them as there were. I think the ant bait is helping and the fact that I have cleaned all my cupboards and counter-tops.

I must keep everything in the refrigerator or the freezer. The ants get into any open food packages. They got into my cereal and potato chips and saltshaker almost anything you can imagine that ants eat they were eating it. When I use the stove to cook or fry something, I must be sure to clean everything. That includes the burners the reflecting trays all surfaces on the range top. If there is the smallest speck of grease, the ants are there to eat it. Very frustrating. I hope that the apartment manager will get the exterminator here quickly to use more powerful insecticides.
