AAAARRRRGGGGHHHH!!! So I went into the kitchen to get some left-over birthday goodness, and guess what?! I know, the title gives it away... Ants had completely overtaken my kitchen!!! This is so irritating! We keep a very clean kitchen... Never keep food out unless it's well covered, always wipe off the countertops and do the dishes within a reasonable amount of time. Does this seem to matter? No!
I've decided this is how the person who came up with the delicatessen of chocolate covered ants did it. He left a bowl of chocolate on his countertop one day and came back to it and it was swarming with ants... He loved his chocolate so much that he refused to throw it out so he just ate it with the ants. Someone caught him and pointed out how disgusting it was, so instead of owning up to the grossness, he just called it a delicatessen and it became a thing. There you have it... My version of the story!
Scott did some snooping and discovered that there is no sealant at the bottom of our siding, so ants are marching by the thousands up behind the siding, crawling up the woodwork, going across the wiring and coming out our electrical outlets... Good times! Yet another project to prolong getting started on our basement. We sprayed like crazy, but if anyone has any other great, pregnancy-safe suggestions, please let us know!
