why do ants stay away from cat food ( wet & dry )?
i just found ants in my Kitchen, they won't go near the cat food.
Ants try to avoid cat food probably due to its smell. The odor that comes from the food is what makes these insects stay away from it.
It's probably because it smells bad or that it doesn't taste good to them.
They are afraid of cats maybe. I know my cat is always watching for bugs.
