    There was no food anywhere. I think they have moved from under our house and expanded... In the printer > the house I'm in now has a serious ant prob, and iv tried everything to get rid of them. It drives me insane

    Yes. Phones can collect dead skin cells in them. Printers can collect food crumbs, insects, or even food that children may feed it.
