Life Under Siege!
Monday, July 18, 2011
They never come alone. I've been told they send scouts out to check a place out. If they find a cozy spot, with food, water...then the scout returns, marking his path for return, sends a signal and returns with maurading hoards! They are insipid little things! And they have breeched the perimider in a weak spot, where the water pipe goes to the outside faucet. They sneak up the pipe, under the kitchen floor and march out in droves to anything left on the kitchen counter, range or floor. They'll stop at nothing to find a food source, and even the dogs dish is not beneath them! Their strength is in their numbers...I'm thinking Billions!
Billions of tiny teeny ants! And last week they invaded MY kitchen! It's been a constant battle...tried several old tricks, red pepper across their path, wipe trails with vinegar to destroy scent trail, and yesterday we resorted to chemical warfare! Today we go into basement to spray under the kitchen, on the basement ceiling, pipes, outside area too.
We will win this War!
The Ants may have the numbers...but I am the bigger person!
