Depending on the type of ant, you might welcome their presence.
Larger ants like carpenter ants and termites (not really ants) can damage your home but smaller ants are just there to eat what you don’t.
Most people don’t want ants of any kind in their house. But, if you see sugar ants or similar small ants, keep in mind, they’re cleaning your cupboards.
Instead of spraying poison, clean the area. Ants are an indication of unclean surfaces. They don’t spread disease like mosquitos. They’re just cleaning where you haven’t.
This is not a personal judgment. Ants can get to places you can’t. Ants clean areas you can’t reach by eating organic material before it starts a colony of mold. They do this without any thanks or even simple acknowledgment of their good deed.
There are around seven billion of us and around one million billion ants on our planet. They deserve respect.
Ants are our friends. They are an important part of our environment.
Ants are Good. Poison Bad.
