The Ants Go Marching One by One

By One House One Couple on Feb 28, 2012

The ants go marching one by one, hurrah, hurrah!

That’s all that goes through my head when I see this:

And THIS!!!!!!:

AAAAAHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!! Why do the ants always want to take over our home!

So yep, this happened again. If you were here a while ago, you saw our other post about ants.

Yep, they came again.

Hard core.

So we had to do some killing, which I hate. This time our defense was to get those little ant bait things you lay around the house, preferably at an ant entrance spot.

Ants take some of the poison bait and bring it to their home and then everyone in the colony dies. It’s so sad. And I hate doing that, but if we don’t, they just keep coming and infesting our cereal and sugar, and sometimes they really end up covering all surfaces after awhile to the point that you can’t even walk anywhere without stepping on hundreds in each step. <– run on sentence?

So what’s the worst creature to ever take over your house? Rats? Raccoons? Mice? Skunks? Or are you like us and have an extreme ant problem? Leave a comment and tell us your horror story!

Come back tomorrow because we are going to show you the master bathroom, tile floors finally grouted and sealed, with the toilet and new vanity officially installed! yay!
