i was almost confused on if i had come to mary's blog! she has been infested with ants as well! i'm sure she will be glad for the tip! and actually, i had a few earlier this summer...so i will have to memo this to self incase they come back!

Congrats! I will try that.

You know what else works great? A spray bottle of soapy water. Actually, that will kill them faster than bug spray. Something about the soap, but I can't quite recall right now.

Summer! I was so going to write about my ants...they are terrible. And ruthless...the vinegar didn't work on them, so I know have had to Raid my house...they were even in the bathroom! Gross. Better than roaches though, and I'm glad I am not the only one with this problem!

I HAVE TO TRY THIS!

i found an unbelievably disturbing amount of teeny tiny ants scurrying around dog food crumbs in our kitchen, too, and nothing has worked. thanks for the suggestion :]
