    A whole lot of laying down and dozing. Trying to shake a somewhat light cold/flu.

    Haha, yeah they can be quite a pain.

    I got to spend the day fighting the ant break in...
    So I woke up this morning (well, afternoon) to a swarm of ants all over my floor, trash can, and under my bed.
    I followed the trail and saw that they were coming in from the hole in the floor where the internet and phone lines run up.

    After a few minutes of research, I walked down to the grocery store and bought some dish soap, a spray bottle, and baby powder.

    Once I got back, I mixed the soap in the spray bottle with water, and sprayed down the entirety of the trail that I could reach. I then liberally applied the baby powder on and around their entrance hole.

    In the space of about 10 minutes, I killed every any in my room and successfully blocked their entrance back in. How is that for the power of simple chemicals?

    Yeah no fun to wake and find a million ants reenacting The Naked Jungle in your home! But as you know, you have to find where they come in. Maybe they just wanted to wish you a happy birthday

    Lordbob if IT does not work out for you then you have a future in pest control.

    Double checked again today, still all gone, just the way I like it

    I consider this an annoying but good learning experiment, I now know how to get rid of ants quickly.

    The nest wasn't outside, they were just coming in through a hole in the floor.
