Ants, too.


We really do have ants. Itty-bitty tiny ones.

First they were in the kitchen. We sprayed and set traps and that seems to have done the trick. Late last week, they got into the cats’ food and water dishes. I didn’t want to spray where the cats have been eating, so I cleaned up both dishes and set up another trap. No dice. The ants, they love the cat food. So I cleaned both dishes and moved ’em again.

This morning, the ants had not only found the dishes once more, they’d found the main food supply. Crap.

I dumped out the remainder of the food, cleaned up the dishes once again, sprayed in the laundry room (where we keep the cat food), filled the dish with the last of the canned cat food and headed to work. Late, naturally.

I have a feeling I’m going to have to take more drastic action against these tiny invaders. Armageddon!

    Fog the place. Please evacuate yourself, Lola, and the cats. MFC just had to go into the house last time we did(The Middlest Broodling had the wrong shorts on), and almost didn’t make it out. Nasty stuff.

    There weren’t any ants in the food dish last night, but I hadn’t moved the water dish back, so I had to clean it (again). I sprayed along the outside walls of the room (away from the food and water dishes). I’ll see what happens with the dishes again tonight. I’m keeping the food in the garage until I’m sure the ants are gone (or until they find it there).
