The Bane of My Existence

25 Sep

Ants!  I hate ants! I feel about ants the way The Squire feels about spiders!

Every time it rains, we get ants in our bathroom. Not just one or two, but great hoards of them, to the point that it looks as if somebody spilled coffee grounds on the counter.  We had a cold snap this week (When it’s been in the upper 80s and low 90s, 62 is a cold snap.) and it’s raining to boot, so they are everywhere. One the counter, in the sink, on the floor, on the toilet seat, for the love of Mike!

These are supposed to be wild critters, at home in the woods and wilderness. There’s no  place to get dry and warm in the wild.  Just be brave out there and buck up. But noooo!

We obviously have the wimpiest ants in the state.

    Time to put down ant traps. We had them one summer and aggressively went after them. Now hubby regularly sprays the perimeter of the house with ant spray and destroys and ant hills near the house. If they’re destroyed outside they can’t get inside.

      We use Terro, which is the strongest thing you can buy without a commercial license. Because we have so much wild life around our house, we’re really hesitant to use anything too potent out doors. Can’t win, sometimes!
