So you leave your house for a few days, and if you left any food out, then you may have a problem. You come back, and a few ants are crawling on the food.
You throw it out and hope the ants stay away, but within a week every time you leave out food they swarm to it.
And it only gets worse.
A few weeks in and the ants are really getting desperate, they get into your food cabinents and crawl into anything that isn't airtight, causing you to throw loads of oterwise good food away.
Finally, you get tired of the problem, you go to the store and buy the best ant-killing spray there is.
You feel in control, and are reassured by the "keeps killing ants for up to 999 weeks" on the bottle, so you lay down your barrier. I even sprayed ants directly with it, and you know what happened? They crawled in it. No instant death, no species extincting and virus, they crawl right through it and barely die. Once the crap dries, they run through your "barrier" freely and since didn't work.
My Only solution, I finally found was highly concentrated ant spray foggers, wonderful devices that you set off, leave your house for a few hours, and come back to find the ant population severely diminished. It works great and keeps their popultion low enough so that you can take your cereal and sugar out of the refrigerator.
And thus I conclude my insect story about the most annoying of Insects
