Dead Ant Walking - Kentucky Fried Pest Control - Ant Assassin For Hire
The sugar ant saga went on for weeks. I tried to be kind and organic. Nothing was working. My patience was wearing thin.
Each day they grew in numbers as the bravely walked around in my kitchen like they owned it. There was nothing that was safe. If I accidentally left anything out on the counters they were all over it.
The last straw was when they showed up all over the downstairs toilet. Crawling all over the tank and marching around the rim. I thought I was about to go mad!
I Googled how to kill ants on the Internet and found they didn't like cinnamon, so I started with that. It seemed to work around the toilet but at the back door they found other ways to get in.
Next, I tried chili powder. That worked for about two seconds too. I think they thought I was happily feeding them or supplying free drugs. They ate it up and came back with their families and in-laws to party.
When all hope was gone, I whined on my Facebook page for help.
Within minutes I had all kinds of remedies. One suggested cornmeal. Another suggested I stomp on them and then a friend offered her sure fire killer in a tube poison. Desperate...I decided to take the last one up on it. Within minutes, I drove to her house to pick it up.
She located it in a plastic tub in her garage and handed it over. With a knowing smile she said, "They're gonna DIE!" I raced home with my prize! Excited to have a mission.
There was only about a fourth of a tube but I squirted it in all the places they were making a trail from. I walked around the house and to my surprise they were on every corner making a trail up the wall and under the siding. Some were carrying eggs!
My imagination was running wild as I could see they were making big nests in the walls of my house! This was WAR!
Determined, I re-baited the next day too. They were eating it up like they were eating KFC with all the fixins.
After a few days or so they were slowly disappearing. I had run out of that tube, so I ordered a few tubes more.
Good thing I did because after a week...they were back. Must have been babies that were born or relatives back from being on vacation. I baited again and now I think they are gone.
You can be sure I have an extra tube of bait on hand now. Who's BAD!
