I'm Under Attack!!!

Ants are everywhere.

I've killed dozens of the little demons this morning. (I know Buddha is rolling over in his grave because of my assault on a life form. But...) these are ants. They bite. And they are coming in at the window which is located exactly where Ben & I want to place the bed when we move our room back here. Apologies to Buddha, but I'm not sleeping with friggin' ants. Just a minute ago there was one crawling on my mouse! Eewwww!

We sat out ant traps yesterday and they are bypassing those completely. Crawling over and around them to be exact!

This is war!

I'm going into full combat mode and I will worry about my Karma later.

Ants, ticks, mosquitoes, and scorpions.
The four pests of the apocalypse.
(Okay. I've only got ants, but you get my point.)

I'm heading to the garden center for munitions.
Victory WILL be MINE!!!

Everyone go to his site and say, "Howdy."

Hey...! Seriously, thanks a lot. As soon as I get a good following going, I'll definitely start a "blog roll" of sorts and you'll totally be #1.

I always thought Bob Saget was somehow attached to the apocolypse.

If worse comes to worse, you could get one of those badass tent things that surrounds your entire house. Those things are sweet.

I personally think insects were created for us to kill. Gives us something to do. hehe

Ok, funny word verification: pelvz

The ants are under seige. I think I'm winning. I'm sure Bonnie's vibes helped. And I've certainly had plenty to do.

Rayke, How are you going to get a following if you aren't posting anything. Don't the two sort of go hand in hand?

I liked Bob Saget.

The problem with those tent things is, if the ants are in my house then I'm enclosing myself in the house with them. Of course, it would make all my uptight neighbors wonder if I were harboring E.T.. Hmmm. Might be worth a try.

And, by "tomorrow or Tuesday"...I obviously meant "tonight".

Hey There!
I am SO glad I'm not the only one suffering from Ant-itis.

You know, a eco friendly way to poison the suckers is to take Roach Rid which has a high content of Boric Acid and mix it with honey.
Lots of experts say use Mint jelly but that , to me, is stupid. Nature does not produce Mint Jelly, but honey. yes. Ants will raid a weak colony of honey bees and steal all the honey. Did you know that?

You mix it up until it has this creamy caramel color and slap some onto a small flat disc of something. They ingest it. It slowly kills them, Because it kills them mechanically, the poison does not degrade, when they eat their fallen comrades, (ants are cannibals) the next ant also dies... sooner or later, either they feed it to the queen and the colony dies, or enough ants die and the queen dies and still you end up with a dead colony.

It works for carpenter ants and the ants we are fighting now, those little brown sugar/grease ants. Who, small tho they be, when they pinch, hurt like a bitc**.

So, when you don't want to use toxic smelling gunk in your house, try nature's way.

Best of luck!!!!
