Sorry to hear that, Kleenex. How / where do you store your syrup?

Reminder

HOw upsetting!! Those little pests come in when you least suspect them. Especially when they all are marching in. They really work, I'll say that.

This reminds me when my mother tried to console me about discovering some kind of pests in my kitchen. She told me on the farm they had no screens and she had to eat the food fast before all the flies did. Won't forget that. Sounds gross. Knowing where those flies have been! Before that, I had never thought about no screens! The ants can get in any way.

How in the world did they get in there in the first place? The bottle had to have been left open.

Yes, it IS a known fact that ants are attracted to sugar, honey, syrup or anything else sweet.

Last summer, after putting a cereal bowl that I've eaten cereal from in the kitchen sink, when I came back to wash it later, I'd find ants in it! Ants were somehow getting in the house.

The only solution is to put down some ant traps or get some insecticide for them.

Once opened, I keep mine in the fridge. Haven't had ants in it yet.

kleenex: You should start shopping some where else! It is not funny to buy a product loaded with ants.

I have bought canisters of drink mix that came fully loaded with ants.
