but you think that's okay while you're sleeping

we gots ants. they're all over a bookcase and my knitting spot.

i have no idea how they're getting in, and that's unnerving. when i was little, we moved into a new house, i got a brand new bed, and one night when i wouldn't sleep and i kept crying, my mom came in and found a colony of ants in our new house had decided to welcome me by crawling all over me in my bed and snacking on my 3 year old self.

ants aren't my favorite.

this sucks.

lemon pledge works in a pinch to cover up their trail and eat through their little ant shells - the acid in the lemon - so that the ants die writhing, agony-filled deaths.

Not that I've ever done such a thing to ant invaders.

argh. i hate ants. (actually? i hate anything that's not welcomed into my home, but whatever.)

we usually have a HUGE ant problem in the spring and mid-summer. we've tried everything. the only thing that has ever worked was these little killing baits that have a liquid in them (so you have to be super careful). for the life of me, i can't remember what they are called but they work spectacularly. they kill the queen and then the entire colony distructs and die.

you know, like the roman empire.

i thought for a second that this might be a knitting-free post (i figured ants don't knit...) but it only lasted half a sentence.
maybe it's a message, i don't know...

My bed became a home for ants once when I was little, too. It was terrible. ugh.
