The Ants Go Marching One by One

It seems the ants inside the house are gone. Now we have them marching down our sidewalk. Click any picture to enlarge.

See them in the crack? Smart Ants.

And now they are walking down the edge...

For some reason they don't seem to like the Amdro I put out. They are not eating it. Guess I may have to pay the money to have the house bug guy take care of the outside ants. Otherwise Tot is going to end up with a hundred ant bites on his legs. Tot has a fascination with them and will stand barefoot right in their line of movement. Tot sure has been keeping me busy this week.

I spray and spray and pamper my house geckos... I hate ants...

They hate Equal/Nutrasweet. It's toxic to them. [Not to mention us]
They hate pepper, which is not.

Supposedly they hate cinnamon too. And Penny Royal.

But at least Tot doesn't eat them like Indy does. Of course, that is one way to get rid of them I guess.

Just have Tot pee on them, that's what I do.

And yes, be sure to tell him to pee on them BEFORE they're biting his legs (I learned that one the hard way).

I used the old boric acid and sugar water bait.
It works really good.
