We were first clued into the details of this observation by the peculiar crunching noises coming from our kitchen pantry. Upon inspection of the closet we we surprised to discover a literal swarm of fire ants working hard to gain entry to this unopened bag of Tostitos tortilla chips. The crunching sound we heard was the ant chewing through the plastic bag in order to reach the chips inside.
