Random Acts of Living

We've been having a problem for the last couple of months with ants. Not a whole lot of ants, just one here or there, fast, little things. I sprayed around the house and put out poisin stakes. Last time I had an ant problem, years ago, the ants made a trail and it usually had a string of ants going up and down it. I got some liquid ant poisin and put it on the trail and shortly afterward the ants were all gone. This time there was never a trail, I couldn't figure out where they were coming from.

Tonight I was watering the plants and I watered my clover and the ants came pouring out! I grabbed the pot and headed outside with it. The plant beside it was covered with ants also, so out it went too. I'm not sure where all the ants that escaped the plant have gone. By nighttime, there's no trace of them. Maybe, hopefully, they're taken care of. It will be nice to have them gone.

The poll's still open!

Oh I hate the ants - so far this year none in the house, but we have had that happen when we lived further out in the country.

Nice find on the Wichita blog - neat one!
