Ants , ants ,ants , I hate ants ! We have little tiny black ants in the Condo . I have tried all manner of things to get rid of them WITHOUT spraying poison on them and nothing has worked . They are SO RUDE ! They refuse to leave .
I tried one method my friend told me she uses . She puts sugar on the outside of her windows for them so they don't come into her house . Works for her, but our ants just eat the sugar and come marching into the Condo and demand more ! Then some one told me to pray the Sura Nemlah( that's the Chapter in the Quran named The Ants ) over them and /or write it down and put it in their path , to send them away . Well , that didn't work either ! Then , I got a email talking about all kinds of home remedies you can do get rid of ants .I tried them too . No luck there . I talked to them and I was hoping none of the neighbors would hear me telling them to take a hike to somewhere else, while I was doing it , lol .
There was even a thing that said to put corn meal down and the ants will eat it , go to their nest and die as it expanded in their stomachs , killing them . I really didn't want to do that , BUT I got desperate after we had company over once this last fall . I went in the room to see if Moe and his friend needed anything in the way of refreshments and saw to my horror , the bowl of chips , black and moving . It was the ants ! How rude of them to try to eat all the chips , and in front of company !
So , desperate measures and all that ..... I got some corm meal . I placed a little in a small dish , then put it in their direct path where they would have to walk through the corn meal . They took the bait . They ate it . They didn't die ! They came back for more ! I told you they were so rude !
After battling them all winter , well they do hibernate a little in the winter , but they never completely disappear since it doesn't get that cold here in winters , I just got feed up with them and threatened them with death if they didn't move out ! Did they listen ? OH NO ! So , last month , before I had some friends over , I sprayed the Condo all over. It worked ! They moved out . Yeah !!! Peace at last !
BUT just the other day I walked into the kitchen and saw a little black speck on the counter top . A ant ! Oh no ! I thought to myself , I will ignore it . The ant won't find anything to eat and it will leave , go back to the nest and tell everybody that there wasn't anything in the Condo for them and they wouldn't bother come back . WRONG , WRONG , WRONG !!!!
The day after that there were 5 ants , The next day 25 ants and so on . I absolutely hate to kill them .They work so hard you know . I feel sorry for them , but I don't want to live with them since they are so rude ! They really don't know when enough is enough . I was left with no other choice but to spray again .
I did , yesterday .It made me sick to commit mass murder like that , but what else could I do ? This morning I woke up to see little black bodies littering the counter tops . Their tiny little legs sticking straight up into the air . So sad .I will miss the pitter patter of their tiny little feet ...... NOT !
