Little Black Ants

These little bastards are the next to invade my home. They find any little nook and cranny to get inside. Right now they’ve made a trail from my kitchen window to my counter tops looking for food. I keep spraying them with 409 until I can get to Home Depot or Lowe’s to get some caulk to put around the window sill. Not only are they in my kitchen but they’ve found a way upstairs into my bathroom as well. So obviously there must be a nest somewhere in the walls. Now the only question is how do I rid my house of these pests when I don’t know exactly where they are? Guess I’ll look for this also when I get to Home Depot.

    Yuck, Ants are the worst. I’m allergic to them and can’t stand seeing 100s of them together.

    409 is a cleaner??? I hate using strong bug spray but that works better than those traps.

    Yep 409 is a cleaner, I get the orange smelling one. Might as well enjoy smelling what I’m spraying to kill bugs lol

    Before I moved to New York, I lived in Oregon. We got ants there every summer. I don’t think I’ve seen one ant since I’ve moved to New York. We just have cockroaches and the largest rats known to mankind.

    I think I would take the ants again.
