Yesterday there was nothing. Today, I have killed dozens of ants in our kitchen! It happens every spring. But usually they show up a little more slowly. One here, one there. But it is a frigging ant explosion today.
I set out the two Dual Choice ant bait stations that the exterminator at work gave me last week. I will wait and see how they work. If they don’t do anything, I will get out the Terro liquid ant bait stations. I know they work. I might have some out in the garage. If not, I can get some at Home Depot.
Meanwhile, I am torn between killing the little black ants with a paper towel, or to let them run free in hopes that they will find and take some of the bait back to the nest.
At least they aren’t the big Carpenter ants. Seeing those guys in my house always makes me nervous. These ants are just annoying.
