Bedroom is not a common place for sugar ants, but they may have several reasons for coming. As we know, search for food is what basically leads them to your place, so if you better quit eating in bed. Another reason is the smell — your sheets can keep smells which attract the insects. Wash bed sheets, blankets and pillow cases as often as possible and use a bleacher-based washer.
If you and your bed are tidy, the problem may lay in your building: old houses with lots of space in the walls and the floors seem like a comfortable place for ants to nest. Try to find and isolate every hole that may be an ant entering point to your bedroom. The other reason is the fusty air in the bedroom — try and ventilate it more often or get an air conditioner to eliminate the house smells. And once a week we’d advise you to wash your bedroom floor with vinegar.
