the ants are gone!
i've been wiping my kitchen counters with white vinegar once in the morning and again after dinner and haven't seen a single ant since. my kitchen is clear. ant problem solved!! hope this might help someone else with little anties scurrying around their house.

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 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.

no anties, but we have crickets! ALL OVER THE PLACE! we feel like we're camping in our dorm...they are sick-nasty. any remedy for those?

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 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 :]

@ christine.. hey christine!! i just read that if you put some molasses in a jar and leave it out overnight the crickets will jump in and drown. you should so try this! it sounds fun!
