Ants Like Sweets? 268 201 admin

Do ants like sweets as much as kids?  According to scientists, an ant in your yard, kitchen (Yikes!), or on the sidewalk is more attracted to a strong, sweet scent than a dull scent. The trick this experiment is to prove that ants like sweets without ending up with ants in the kitchen!

What you need:

  • Piece of bread
  • Piece of potato
  • Piece of apple

What you do:

  1. Place the pieces of food a distance away from each other in a yard or on a sidewalk.
  2. Keep an eye on the food and check back often.
