We were typing away this morning and twice, out of nowhere, we suddenly found an ant crawling on us. We're so glad it was just a single ant. (Well, two single ants.) Last year we had several instances where we were completely overwhelmed with ants, but since then we've tried a lot of things that didn't work, and a few that did......Knock on wood, that is. We hope those two weren't just scout ants paving the way for the rest of their friends.
• We trimmed back vines that were touching our house. • We wash dishes right away. • We keep all food (except fruit that shouldn't be refrigerated) in our fridge. Even dry dog food. • We wipe up spilled water after our dog drinks from the water dish. • We have an AntPro Bait Station Kit. • And yes, we hate to admit it, but we do have toxic ant stakes in the ground around our cottage (the shame, the shame!).
