Hi Blog Readers!
Everything old becomes new again, isn’t that the saying? Today, I am happy to return of my old way of summertime ant control.
When ants invaded my home this summer, I tried ant spray instead of my usual mode of feeding the poor critters outside. Chemical warfare would work for a day or two until the critters found a new avenue of attack. It was not fun for me to kill them and suffer the smells of chemicals inside but I tried and tried, holding out for my introduction into the wonderful world of insect free modernity.
It . Didn’t . Work
Last night I set out a plate of sugar water. I don’t know where I got this remedy but I much prefer it to RAID.
Outside, lined up so cutely around the plate, the numbers of ants is so much smaller than when they are invading the kitchen but I’ll bet that is just a result of my sense of panic and imposition. The Middle Way is so much better!
