Over the past 24 hours, an ant nest has been set up in my terrarium. Turns out my brother had been eating food in his room next to mine and the sugar ants have migrated to my terrarium. They made their way through the ventilation crack at the top and into a pot that was touching the glass. My Nepenthes campanulata pitcher is browning from overfeeding and ants are spreading throughout my terrarium.
Yes, this could mean a source of food for the plants, but it looks disgusting having ants carrying their eggs across pots and on the glass of the terrarium.
How can I get rid of the ants? I'm thinking about flooding the pots, causing the ants to scurry and take their eggs with them (I can collect these, freeze them, and feed them to the plants later).
