We have an ant “situation” at our house. By “situation” I mean “infestation” and by “infestation” I mean if someone would show a picture of our house you could probably watch, in real time, the ants take over the house.
I’ve been begging Zach to call the pest person that comes out and takes care of the other pests out here. He came out today. Few things about ants I didn’t know.
–They like either: protein, sugar, salt or carbohydrates. It changes all the time. I suddenly related a little more to the little devils upon hearing that.
–When the ants started appearing they created what Zach and I dubbed “a superhighway” in our kitchen. There were always 2 lanes moving to and fro the tiniest of crumbs. We found out that when one ant finds a tasty treat it proceeds to go tell all the others. You can actually SEE the first ant bump into the second and on down the line. Fascinating.
–The pest control guy gave us some gel stuff and then sprayed something that will supposedly take out the whole colony. I’m skeptical but the pest guy was freakishly knowledgeable in all things ant so I’ll go with it.
In the end, I can’t wait to see them die. I was going to take a picture but didn’t want to gross you out (ok, I actually didn’t want you to see how nasty my kitchen is).
On another note, I cleaned the entire house. Did a good 7 loads of laundry and made dinner today. I even managed to take a shower and use the foot scrubber thingy.
These days of feeling like a good person have to hold me over for 2 weeks or so when I can manage it again.
Must go, dishes can’t last in the sink anymore or we will literally be overrun.
