So once I brought a few snacks into my room (live in a hostel). Even without having them opened, my shelves had files of ants streaming in and out of them, attacking the unopened snacks. I did get airtight containers to store them and since then they’ve remained largely untouched. But the ants haven’t left. Every so often, I wake up to see lines of ants in some direction I can’t tell. They could be from my window to my door, from some point in my shelf to my windows and so forth. I’ve tried sweeping them away, but they always come back. A friend of mine suggested spraying deodorant all over their trail, and that’s more of a quick fix, cause they always find a new trail or resume the same one after a few days. This is especially annoying cause I can’t sleep properly. These buggers often get into my bed and gimme a heck of a time.
Do you guys know of any simple means to keep them out?
I could buy some ant killing powder, but I’m a messy dude and I don’t trust myself to handle a potentially poisonous substance.
