They've been bugging me for a few months.
I tried some insecticides, but they just keep on coming, although it's gotten less.
So I was wondering how these ants didn't get infected with COVID-19, as it's possible for the virus to infect animals.
Turns out they have tiny anty-bodies.
Ba dum tsss! I'll get my coat.
Half of the story is actually true though.
There is an insecticide known as "ant honey" (because it looks like honey). You place drops of it where the ants are to be found (but not near food or on food preparation surfaces!), and the ants take it back to their nest, where it kills the ants in the nest.
It takes a few days to work, but if it does - it works very well.

If something has a solution... Why do we have to worry about?. If it has no solution... For what reason do we have to worry about?
Help me to understand what I'm saying, and I'll explain it better to you
Rating helpful answers is nice, but saying thanks can be even nicer.
Every spring (before the outside really warms) and ever autumn (when the outside starts to chill) we get the little visitor. They're just looking for food.
And that's the key to it all - don't leave anything around for them to eat and they'll eventually stop looking. You really should, however, tolerate an ant our two - it's there world too. If you don't give them reason to return they'll not come by often.
You can't get rid of them, but you can try to control them. Ants send out scouts for food and leave a pheromone trail for the others to follow. Get several small lids or bottle caps and place honey in them. Place them around outside your house. Clean the kitchen with a strong detergent to get rid of the pheromone trails and any food that may be lying around. Keep from having food lying around and that includes pet food if at all possible.
