The Ants are Marching
updated: Aug 21, 2014, 7:42 PM

By John Palminteri

There's been a relentless arrival of ants on counter tops, in bathrooms and near pet dishes throughout the area in the last couple of months. The Argentine ants have come to the surface due to the drought, and are searching for any water they can find. That has them crawling out of cracks in walls, baseboards, door jams and window sills. Pest control companies say nearly all of their calls lately have something to do with an ant problem. Everything from store bought sprays, to home concoctions to professional services have been used by local residents to get rid of these unwanted visitors.
