husband went to get dressed this morning and discovered ants on his
clothes in the closet. I could ofcourse spray everywhere in there but
then we would have to empty out all our clothes to rewash and then put
anyone have any remedies that would not involve so much work and also
not be harmful or anything like wearing our clothes sprayed with poison?
They're probably coming in for the moisture. You can try sprinkling powder around the baseboards of the closet since powders deter them because it dries out their bodies. Any kind of powder will do, and it doesn't take very much, just a consistent line all around the baseboards on the floor of the closet.
Are they really tiny brownish ants? If so, they are called pharoah ants, and spraying doesn't help, it just spreads them more because they scatter. You'll have to get the ant bait poison stuff. They will take the poison back to the nests and it will kill off the colony.
We also are going a problem with ants. They are a mixture of fire ants and black ants. We saw some crawling from a power outlet address they got on my bed. We've got them in every room. We heard that cinnamon works but only put it in our cabinets.
