In the past couple of years, we’ve been INFESTED with little ants. As soon as it starts getting warm out, any little scrap or crumb, or scent of food will attract the ants into the house. Last year, they even made it into my bedroom, crawling right my night stand.
While it drives me nuts, it does give the kids entertainment. Forget the ant hill experiments, we have our own little system without all that fuss! ;) My youngest son was fascinated by the how the little tiny ants could carry crumbs bigger than their own bodies.
I’m not as fascinated….
Suffice to say, when it comes to my comfort or the creepy crawly bugs, I’m going to choose me. I’ve been trying to use green alternatives whenever possible. However, when it has come to this ant situation, we have yet to find a green alternative. I’ve tried pretty much everything so the solution is the insecticide and using it as carefully as we possibly can.
