Here is one of my “keeping it real” posts. Blog readers have said to me that they like reading my blog because I “keep it real”. Well, today that’s exactly what I’m doing.
I had ants in my kitchen. UGH. They were around the kitchen sink. I did all the usual things…
I tried to deny it. There were only two ants one day. Then next day there were three. I tried to deny it again. Then next day there were six.
Dang. I have ants. I think we all try to do that. We don’t want to think we have ants. We don’t want to deal with having ants. It’s easier to just think it’s a quirk and there really are only two…or maybe even just one.
But nope. I had ants. Ugh. I hate this. In my previous life, before my husband passed away, he’d have taken care of this. Every time something goes wrong, it’s always a reminder that he isn’t here.
But hey…I’ve been tackling some big projects without him so surely I could take care of a few ants.
I had them last year and I tried to remember what I used. That’s when I remembered my solution. I had some AWESOME ant killer.
This is the stuff, Terro Ant Killer.
I put a couple of drops on a piece of cardstock and the ants come running. Seriously, after about 45 of the stuff sitting there, there were ants surrounding it. See?
Proof I really did have an ant problem. The ants after leaving the poison act a little “drunk” and then they go back to the nest and die. The liquid is on their body and the other ants who didn’t have direct contact with the poison that are in the nest will also die.
I’ve used this twice now. The next day after putting it out, my ant problem looks like this…
No ants…just crumbs from the previous day when I didn’t move the bate.
I’ve not seen ants but I did leave the bait out for 24 hours just in case. I will always keep some of this on hand from now on. Typically when I have ants I cringe and end up having to make an extra trip to town. Now anymore. There is plenty in one box to take care of ants for several times.
I got mine from THIS LINK on Amazon. I highly recommend this stuff!!
