Ants in your house! Yuck!
Annoying little ants decided one day to march right in and eat my blueberry muffins! Yes! There were a billion ants crawling all over my fresh baked blueberry muffins…! I could not believe it! Woke up Friday morning to a big ant invasion! Little ants marching their funny straight line formations right across the floor up the wall and across the counter to the muffins. How do they know how to do that in the first place? How in the world did they know the muffins were there? The muffins were in a plastic container.
Needless to say, my OCD issues kicked in big time! After my husband exterminated the little intruders till they were dead and gone I cleaned like no one’s business! We determined that they had to have come through the window. Which, again still were left bewildered as to how they did that. Called the pest control guy and he came out the next day. He had his suspensions as to how they came in and why. He said, if you have tree branches touching your house they can crawl across the branch on to the house and in through the windows. Sure enough after he sprayed the inside of the house real good he went out side to do the exterior and sure enough the holly tree sitting on the corner of the house near the window they came in were covered with ants. So, of course he sprayed the tree real good. I was amazed! He said ants have better sniffers than dogs! Wow!
So moral of the story, it’s good to keep your landscaping trimmed up and tidy.
