As if mad cats and over protective birds weren't enough I give you the common ant.
That's right, the ant.
Portrayed as cute in many films including one of my favorite A Bug's Life, these little critters have been tormenting me for years! And I do mean years!
I have *cough*entirely too many animals *cough* so that means I'm deathly afraid of trying to use any kind of sprays and so have been fighting these guys in other ways, meaning at least 8 tubes of caulk on every crack and crevice I can find, investing in lots of batteries for my flashlight so I can see miniscule little areas that I managed to miss on the first 12 go arounds with the caulk, putting up trim and then caulking around that to seal it, and the countless vacuum bags in just "sweeping" them up and I won't even go into the late nights just trying to find out where in the hell they are coming in this time!
So last week in cleaning my house because I had company coming, hehe...I really need excuses, I wake up early and find the little buggars have found the dog food bowl...argh!
I take the bowl outside and set it on my lounge chair up high and figure that would at least help and off I go to stop the swarm and use up yet another tube of caulk.
This is the sight I saw, several hours later.
I think I've got them this time...I really do.
Hehe, I say that every time...
