My Freeze dried shrimps container had a visitor today, it looks like a termite.
Last year my container of Algae wafers was completely eaten by thousands of termites.
I have no idea how they are finding their way into an air tight container.
Any ideas to keep them out.
My mom used to keep few cloves in her bottle of sugar to keep ants out.
Would the same strategy of cloves work with a container of shrimps, would an Aro be put off by the smell of cloves?
Any ideas would be great.

keep your food in the freezer, it keeps bugs out and also helps keep the food longer.

I'm not that familiar with termites since we don't have them here but I cannot imagine a predator like an arowana minding a gut loaded ant as an interesting snack.
