Minnesota Ants

The ants go marching one by one into your home through cracks and crevices into your kitchen, pantry, and food storage. Sugar ants, also known as piss ants or crazy ants to the local Minnesotan, are insanely popular for infesting homes. As their name suggests, sugar ants are attracted to all the sweet foods you have stored away in your cupboards and crumbs you’ve dropped on the floor.

Once these tiny little insects have found a good food source, they will make a single file line and haul it back to their colony. One of the biggest things you can do to prevent the appearance of sugar ants is to get rid of their food source. Seal your food so they cannot get into the goods stored away on your shelves. Clean up crumbs when they fall. Though sugar ants cannot harm you, they are a nuisance and can ruin food that has not been sealed tightly. Once sugar ants have infested your cookie jar, you’ll want to throw those cookies out! Because sugar ants can chew through paper, cardboard, and thin plastic, it may be time to consider reorganizing your pantry if sugar ants have a history of being prevalent on your property.

Another popular kind of ant in Minnesota is pavement ants. These ants are more likely to be found outside than inside because they are attracted to seeds, plant sap, and other insects. Occasionally you will find pavement ants inside the house because they are also attracted to human foods such as meat, nuts, honey, cheese, and bread. You may also find them inside during the winter as they seek to stay warm.
