Ant Attack!

September 13, 2006 at 5:35pm By: Mr. Wilson Posted in 625 Elm Street

Our kitchen has been taken over by ants. It started a couple days ago with just a few ants, but this morning there was a lineup like women at a public restoom. Fortunately, we had some Grant’s Kills Ants on hand. Within an hour the little buggers were lined up around the toxic blue pools of ant crack cocaine, ready to carry it back to the nest. There were even a couple corpses scattered about; they must have o.d.‘d before they could even make it home. Gluttons.

For a moment I felt a little guilty about wiping out an entire ant colony. Then I noticed a couple ants wandering near Robbie’s formula. I don’t feel guilty any longer.

We had an ant problem earlier this year… set out some poison just outside the kitchen, and they were gone the next day.

I’m not generally a fan of insecticide, but sometimes, nothing else works.

Ants spontaneously took over our mailbox this week.  A kitchen, I understand.  The mailbox?!?!  Apparently I have some tasty mail.

I, too, had to resort to spraying since I couldn’t identifying their food source.
