Just to get away from the COVID 19 stuff for a minute.
Last year I bought a bulk package of crystal 20L to use in my winter brewing extract batches. Life got in the way and I didn’t use much last year. So I had already packaged it up in 1lb packages in zip lock bags. Put them in a kitchen cabinet and forgot about them.
Fast forward to this year. I got out some LME put some Centennial in mesh bags and started to put 1lb of the crystal into a mesh bag to steep when I saw something moving. Very small ants, yuck. Out to the trash went the mesh bag and all. So I grab another zip lock. Same thing inside a sealed bag, all of them. No trace of anything in any cabinets. How can this be?
We do get small ants down here but a couple of Terro ant baits always takes care of them. How could they get into a zip lock anyway?
