Overheard at Chez Midlo tonight. We are battling those little
sugar ants and we've been using spray cleaner to kill them as well as caulking because I don't want to use anything super toxic.

Baby Midlo - 10, says as she is spraying the backsplash yet again :eyes: "You'd think they would get the message now that we have killed so many of their brethren".

Yup. She said 'brethren'.


:rofl:

1. I just got over dealing with an ant problem at my apartment
and those ant traps took care of them immediately. I think Raid makes them

4. Do you mean the combat ones?
I got those, but they aren't working. I'm actually trying boric acid now.

3. Are you being facetious?
Because I have been spraying target cleanser at them like it is going out of style, yet they still come marching in.


Get it? Marching In. :rofl: Well, not really.

5. Oh when the ants... go marching in... Oh when the ants go marching in.
seriously though... that sucks... I agree with your daughter... one or two of them stake out the food and call the others... you'd think one or two of them would let the others know if some of them are getting killed. Brethren... LOL.

6. Isn't that funny? I'm not sure where she heard it because we
generally don't use that term.

These little suckers are driving me nuts. I have gone through two entire bottles of Target spray cleanser this week killing them. I thought they were coming in at a spot around the kitchen window, so we caulked the bejesus out of it.

Apparently we were wrong. :(

It's pretty common here right now with this horrific heat. A lot of my friends have them.

11. Yeah, I saw that.
Listen, don't open your door for a while. The heart patient is on his way to your address, (which I got off Lexis Nexis, so there) with his shotgun.


Mrs.Matcom can come live with us. SHE'S nice. :P
