Have you ever noticed that you rarely see a lone ant? That’s because they travel in colonies and when one little scavenger picks up the scent of food, he carries it back to his nest. Soon the whole family lines up and follows the leader -- and before you know it, they’ve made themselves at home in your kitchen or on your outdoor buffet.
But the good news is, there are ways to throw off their little scent detectors and keep them away from your home. And many of them are as close as your kitchen cupboard.
