The whole HERD!

I grew up in the country, but I sure don’t remember having to experience so much wildlife!

I just came in to my office to get some work done. I sat down and right away had to kill two itty bitty ants that crawled along the edge of my desk. In seconds I realized they were everywhere! The entire HERD OF ANTS IS IN MY OFFICE!!

Smack, squish, thump, bang. I’m killing ants as I yell for Jeff to come and help!

I had left my window open all day because it’s really hot today. The screens don’t fit totally tightly in these wooden framed windows so I guess the entire herd decided to crawl around the screen and explore my desk for sweet things. I have no food in my office so I don’t know what they were after. Hopefully they aren’t the little crazy ants from Houston that are attracted to electronics!

Jeff and I just killed every ant that made an appearance and then Jeff sprayed the window ledge on the outside with ant RAID.

Oh! there’s another ant, gotta go…

  1. Oh Lisa, I can’t ever forget the ants at your place in Parry Sound last year, YUCK! I am glad that so far I haven’t had any wildlife in my place- although I do live on the third floor. Sorry I am not there to help you with the ants, did you use a vacuum?
    Hope today is less of an adventure.

  2. ok, so do your best to get rid of the snake, ants and definitely the wasps and add in the groundhogs before my arrival in a couple weeks, ok…pretty please

  3. The groundhogs have moved on! They only were here for a few days. Now the wasp nest on the other hand is HUGE!
