I hate ants

I guess my title says it all. I hate ants. The little blighters make me so angry.

My Darling Husband (DH) keeps telling me it's because our house is 'dirty'.

Meaning I don't do enough housework.

I'll admit it, I don't like doing housework, but I do enough so that we live in a nice, clean, comfortable environment.

Right now, I'm watching one of the little menaces climb up the wall, that's been sprayed with ant spray. Why won't they die??

I'm sick of picking them off Darling Daughter's (DD's) mat. 

It's only been since ex-TC Oswald that all the ant dramas escalated to the point now where the slightest tickle on my leg and I'm madly swatting to get them off me. Whether they are there or not.

I've sprayed ant spray, I've tried killing by hand, I've tried vaccuuming them up. To no avail.

My house is almost spotless. Where the ants are most, IS spotless, it's been cleaned that many times in the last few days. 

They are driving me batty. 

I guess you could say I'm getting ant-sy (oh a terrible, terrible joke, I know)


  1. I hate them too!! A kettle full of boiling water outside in the nest if you can find it!! I use the antrid baits inside whichwork well except they take a day to work properly!!

  2. Ants appear almost everywhere! Anyway, you can try sprinkling cinnamon, baby powder or rock salt to their pathway to drive them away. Also, try mixing alcohol and water and then spray the solution instead of killing them with your bare hands. There are a lot of ways you can eliminate ants, but the simplest would be maintaining cleanliness around house.
