John - I never thought I would ever see this! I opened the frig this morning and at the bottom in front of the veggie bins was a HUGE carpenter ant. I had a couple here and there in early spring but not enough to alarm me and have not seen any frass anywhere. Also, have not seen any more since early spring so this really was a shock. I had just emptied out and cleaned my frig 2 weeks ago also and no signs of ants in there or around there - hubby pulled out frig so I could clean behind it.

I am hoping it is possible I brought him home in the 4 pack bottles of coffee drink or 6 pack of applesauce or something but I feel that is unlikely. I do not have any veggies or salad stuff in the frig that he could have been in.

Wondering what you make of this.

Thanks.
