Big Yuck




All spring I have seen these bits of dirt in corners around the house.... especially in the guest bathroom on the main level.  I kept sweeping them up .. or mopping them up... or just swiping at it with my stocking feet.

Today I walked into the living room and saw this mound in the middle of the floor between the living room and the dining room.  I thought cat puke or something similar but when I went to look it was moving!!!!  YUCK!!!!!!!!!  

It was a mound of swarming baby ants!!!

Now how did I manage to get a swarming bunch of baby ants in the middle of my house...... not near a window or door.  YUCK!

So I grabbed the window cleaner - cause honestly I didn't have a clue what else to grab and sprayed and wiped.  Then I looked around and there were ants all over the damn place.  They all got sprayed and wiped.  

I checked the kitchen....... nothing.  I checked the pantry .......nothing.  I checked window ledges and doors.......nothing.   Just in the living room.  In the middle of the house.  YUCK!!!

Now my skin is itchy and I swear I feel ants running over my body...... I HATE bugs.  They are ok outside..... but not EVER in my house.  

I am now officially neurotic.

You're just now neurotic? Just now?

Mixture of bleach and water in a spray bottle kills 'em.
I had ant problems in FL, and that always did the trick.

Buffalo, I think she just figured out that she's neurotic.
