Teeny Tiny Sugar Ant Infestation Need safe ways to get rid of them
Dear Community, I live in SW FLorida and we have had so much rain and this is the first time in 12 years here that sugar ants I believe are causing great problems on my cooking counter. I have a center counter with a stove and I believe they are coming up through the cavity alongside the stove. The minute I prepare any food on the counter, I am inundated with the ants. We have tried many natural remedies -- spreading cloves all over the counter, spraying a homemade spray with peppermint, eucalyptus, melaleuca, putting traps everywhere. I am really trying to avoid calling in an exterminator because I am so chemically sensitive. I would welcome all suggestions that have had so success. I am cleaning constantly, but I love cooking.
