ANT-Vasion is a citizen science project conducted by entomologists at The California Academy of Sciences and UC Berkeley who are interested in exploring the insects living in your backyard.

ANT-Vasion is a citizen science project that needs your help to understand which natural repellents work best at keeping ants away. You can help by experimenting with different spices to see which ones stop ants from getting to a tasty meal.
