I started out this ant season just smashing them with my thumb or washing them down the sink…we put a little Taro (or is it Tero) out in the kitchen covered with a corn cob serving dish so the cats couldn’t get to it. Worked like a charm…at first they all gathered but then they took the poison back to their little homes and killed their families.
Then the freeway opened up in the bathroom. They were rushing from a little, tiny, teeny hole in the tile, down on the bathtub and over to our sinks. A couple at first and then they brought friends and then I noticed there was a stream of them going both ways. So I put out Taro.
This is disgusting!
For almost 24 hours.
He went out to spray ant killer outside and I think it is helping – he actually grabbed the weed b gone the first time – that application did nothing. He is also very happy when I tell the story on social media. It seems one or the other has made the travel dangerous for them as the freeway traffic has slowed…I’m through with this whole bug thing this summer!! aackkkkk
Until next time….
