The past two mornings (early morning like around 6:00) I have noticed these little bugs on my kitchen floor. They are pretty small,brownish color and have wings. I looked up a picture of a winged ant and that is what they look like. Anyways, I tried to stomp on them and kill them before I went to work.
I left a note for my boyfriend about them and later that day around 8pm I came home and he said he had seen nothing. I inspected the floor and saw no bugs also.I thought they were gone, but then this moring I saw them again, only more this time. Again, my boyfriend saw no bugs and I myself didn't see any either when I got home. Why is it that they show up in the morning but then disappear?
We have a leak in our garbage disposal sometimes so we keep a bucket underneath to catch the falling water. We had the leak for about two months now. The house is a rental and the realty company isn't worried about fixing it. I heard that maybe the bugs are attracted to the water. Is this true? I also heard that if you put dryer sheets around the area the ants don't like that?
I don't know what to do and my boyfriend thinks I'm crazy because he has never seen them! Someone please help!
