There was a time when I had a breezy attitude about ants. Now it's different. I hate these little fuckers because they've taken over my house. They come out from the baseboards, colonize my houseplants, live in the drains in the sinks and tubs. They crawl around on my side tables, appear on my computer screen and have even made their way into my bed. The only place they have not invaded is the kitchen. Go figure.
They are argentinian ants. My yard is full of them. I think the whole hillside behind me is a giant fucking ant farm.
I am using Orange Guard and Borax (of the 20 Mule Team variety) to combat them. Borax is 100% Sodium tetraborate -a natural mineral which is also what those liquid Terro traps are made of. I used them by the dozen in my yard.
I could probably wipe them all out with some Monsanto syle poison but I'm not into using those types of products in my home. Anyone got some other remedies they've used?
Please. Tell. I'm about to lose my sanity.
