i am sweeping the dead ants which i managed to diminish them. i am just being sorry because i need to kill them for i think there's no way how to oust them all. i cannot simply sweep them while they're still alive because for sure they will all just bite you or yet, even if you can, in a minute or two, they will just return into the place for a reason that ants have this scent which allow them to identify their kin and nestmates. that is why one way to eliminate them is that i sprayed perfume along their pavement. but the rain keeps going on that is why they crawled into my room to find shelter. but who would like to live with red ants on? red ants won't greet and wave at you, they will bite even if you will just stand on the floor and don't move. it's their main characteristic to bite that is why with or without reasons they will really bite you.

Awww...aint it is believed that red ants coming inside the house is a sign of good luck ? - hehehe Absolutely who wants to live with red ants crawling all over and messing with our leftover foods on the table (duh) Once I saw a marching band (ants) I had to trace where these bands coming and attack their armies

haha... i guess you mean the black ants carrying their eggs not the red one who will bite you at any any chances for as they said it gives a bad omen. they said that if red ants will already parade inside your house, you can encounter lots of trials and bad lucks. well, that is according to a saying from a superstitious believer. it will not just choose to attack leftovers, they will hunt for any food that they can see. they are essential to environment habitat but annoying most of the times.

yes red ants can never push them away from us,especially in the kitchen are and even in our closets,and of course i need to spray some chemicals to kill to eliminate them and after that i need to swipe them out to the place where they die.

oh yes, but if you bother them you can move them away but it will take a few minutes to do it so but sooner or later they will resemble again and will march into the pavement where they used to pass. it is because they have this chemical from their mouth which they used as marker so that they will not be strayed away from the line marks to get off far from their colleagues. that is the use of it. what i did was i spray some kerosene. thanks :)

I really hate red ants for there are so many of them in our backyard, and every time I am cleaning or sweeping our ground, they would bite my feet one after the other. They are pretty disturbing. There are also times that they manage to kill a worm or a small bird and when that particular animal starts to rot, the troubles will then follow.

ants are essential to keep the habitat in the environment balanced. like us, they also need shelter for them to live. but some of them are annoying and considerable as pest because sometimes they will hunt foods inside your house and if being swept accidentally or not, they will really bite you. yeah - whatever it is, thank you for posting..
