I totally understand ants in the kitchen. Not that I want them there but it makes sense. The bathroom is just stupid! Ants are stupid insects!
I used to be a pacifist. I used to not even like to kill time. Now it is war and I am in warrior mode. I tried environmentally friendly ant killers, ant traps, and pet friendly ant killers. The ants just came back. Finally I bought Raid.
Of course the fumes from Raid gave me a migraine but it seems to have done the job. I am willing to forgive the ants the migraine if I can get my bathroom ant free again.
These aren’t carpenter ants or even big ants. I know it may not seem like a big deal but let me offer a few reasons the war is on:
The ants were on my towel
I found ants on the toilet seat
Ants were crawling over my soap
A whole platoon was advancing down the shower wall
Somehow there were ants on the toilet paper
There were ants in my bed. Most likely crawled off us from the towels or shower, or????
How can I feel relaxed when I am constantly seeing ants? Where are they going to pop up next? Luckily the weather is pleasant and I can have the windows open to air out the smell of Raid. Ode du Raid is horrible. If it gives me a migraine surely the toxicity will kill the ants and their nest?
War is full of strategies but I am at a loss. If the Raid let’s me down I am very low on options. I know for certain I have to win this war. What home remedies have been successful for you against ants? Have you ever had to rage a war on invading ants? Please help!!!!!!
