The ants are winning . . .
Oh man, I almost hate to post anything with the widget thread alive and well, but here goes . . . .
My kitchen is being inundated by ants, and they're really starting to pi** me off !! They seem to come from NOWHERE, and are everywhere !!! I actually just stare at a space -- under the sink, the wall, whatever, and it's like the little buggers just appear, with no trail from whence they're coming !!! Yesterday saw a few on the outside of the dishwasher -- opened the top drawer and they were EVERYWHERE -- ran the load really fast, re-ran the load, and they were still there !!!! (and I might add, there was no food on the dishes since I pretty much rinse everything really well if I'm not going to be running the DW right away ) Today, under the sink, the other day, coming out a small area by the built-in micro. There is not one speck of food around for them to lust after -- the rains are through, so they're not coming in from the rain, or whatever stupid thing they do.
Anyway, point of post -- does anyone have any natural tips on how to deal with these things??? I hate to use sprays, which DH LOVES to use -- This morning he said he'll cut down any tree branches close to the house -
the thought makes me cringe -- Clark Griswold at his best !! I may have to resort to calling some pest control, but I hate the thought of all kinds of awful stuff being sprayed into our walls !!!! This is all starting to make me be a little bit edgy and testy !! There's got to be some kind of perfect widget for this !!
