There's a war going on in my house. Against the ants.
It started when I noticed them attacking my cat's food bowl. They did this last year, which is why we keep her food bowl in the entry way. I pulled out the ant spray and sprayed down the area, including outside the house. Problem solved.
For a day. The next day they were back, and they were in my kitchen too. On my counter. In my sink. Time for more desperate actions. I pulled out those 'combat ants' thingys, the little round white ones that have ant poison in them. The ants eat it and take it back to the anthill and kill everyone.
Whew! By the next day they were 80% gone. Looked like we were winning.
Then I woke up this morning. And they are back, and with a vengeance! The cat bowl again, and now in the bag! On my counter, on my fridge, in my fridge! I moved the bag of rice and the cereal boxes into the fridge because the ants were all over them! In my children's room, attacking their stuffed animals! In my bathroom, crawling around the floor! Ahh!!!
I walked back into my bedroom and they are climbing up the wall!!! On the ceiling!!! What food is there to eat on the ceiling???
I really wish Mark were here. I'd look at him and shriek, "Mark! The ants are everywhere!" And he'd pull out the vacuum and vacuum them up...every ten minutes...no, I better take care of this problem myself.
I don't know what to do with these guys. I'm going nuts.
