ants, ants, ants!

i have ants all over my house. its driving me nuts. Everytime i think they're all gone-- BAM, they come back.

i sprayed the outside of our house. i have ant traps all over the kitchen. i try picking every little speck of food off of the floor after erica eats [which can be hard, b/c she can REALLY thow things far], i keep the counters cleaned off... but yet they keep coming back.

and now, i found them in the living room. on erica's book shelf! why a bookshelf??? I've been spending all morning so far killing ants: i'll smoosh all of the them that i see, and then just as soon as they're gone, another army of ants comes out. they just never end! As soon as i can get her to take a nap, i'm gonna poor my wrath out on those little pests!!!

wish me luck...

I hate ants. The little things are a nightmare to get rid of.

Dude, you crack me up!! I have been at war with ants since I was a little boy! I just love to kill them. Do you have the tiny red ones or the big black ones?

Spray the pesticide directly on the ants. That shud kill them. :)

Get rid of them fast.

I so know the feeling... were're fighting them right now, too... they are coming out of the outlets in our kitchen... it's bizarre!

raj-- i cant spray them in the house [at least, i dont think i should]. b/c of erica being everywhere and into everything, i dont think it would be safe.

i did, however, spray outside. it seems to have helped the infestation in the living room.

Yikes!

I haven't seen ants yet in our house. Sounds as though you have a really big problem and perhaps you need help from a pest control company??? This (meaning the magnitude of your infestation) isn't normal, is it? :-/
