So, I have this huge ant infestation because of a bagle my stupid sister left on the floor :facepalm:. So I have two questions, 1. how do I get rid of them without harming them TOO much? 2. They were breing alates (I'm pretty sure, unless it was a very skinny queen), what does that mean? it is nuptial flight season where I live so, are they having a nuptial flight in my room (eef, that would be bad :sore:).

If it's because of the bagle, throw the bagle outside, if they stay after doing that... well, even though we keep them, ants can still cross a fine line between one of the most interesting creatures and pets, to pest, so, I wouldn't worry about killing them too much.

This was already answered on their other post, this was just a double post because they clicked the post button and didn't wait for it to load.

The ants have retraeted now after the bagle was gone, thanks anyway!
