I HATE ANTS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


I'm at war
with ANTS!
Which I hate!

I am positive that they live in our walls.
They pop up any and every where.


in the bathrooms...(yuk, they love toothpaste)
in the laundry...(just plain gross!!)
In the freezer...(yes I said freezer,
at least they killed themselves there)
in the living room...(on the couch, icky!)
in the kitchen...(in the microwave, yes it is clean!
Maybe they just wanted to warm up from the freezer?)

They make themselves right at home.

I have been chasing them back and forth
from one end of the house to the other.
Did I mention I hate ANTS!!

My Washing Machine overflowed...
You should have seen the
big black masses!


We all feel like they are always on us!


UGGG!
I have cleaned and cleaned.
I don't understand why they are so bad this year.
We've had a very mild Winter so far.

I have read that they don't like :

baby powder with talc
(try and find some without cornstarch.
I guess they've discovered the talc in baby powder is bad for babies.
It's a wonder how my kids made it)

Cinnamon

Cornflour
(can you tell me if corn meal and
 flour are them same thing?)

Mint
(I know this does not work for sure.
There is an ant farm in my Mint patch outside!)

This is a tried and true method,
but it doesn't work so good in the house.
I got the feeling they were playing games and laughing at me.
Now I'm all for not using pesticides.
But there comes a time when
they leave you with no other choice.


I decided to play back
 and kill them with love.
I sprayed a big X and O.
I sprayed a circle around the perimeter of each room.
And then an X from corner to corner.

I would love to bomb the house.
I've been putting it off for years because of our pets.
But come Summer when it's warm enough to put them all outside
I think that is what I will have to do.


By the way did I mention...

I hate
