Tackle it Tuesday: Thanks to the ants, ...

Tackle It Tuesday Meme



I now have the cleanest kitchen in Oklahoma. Here it is:


We found ants marching forty by forty under our backdoor this afternoon. I was FAR less than happy. The Bookworm King ran to WallyWorld to bet some ant killer, Windex, and some other stuff that was on the list. I stayed here and fought the army with the little Shark vacuum until DH got back and used the Big Vacuum. He sprayed the outside of the door with ant spray and then he did floors. While he was doing floors, I cleaned the living room and dining room and kitchen so that the ants wouldn't find as much food to eat (not that it was really dirty - we just have kids, remember). When I got started on the kitchen, I removed everything from the countertop section by section so that I could get ALL of the countertop clean. DH even lifted up the microwave so that I could clean under it (now THAT was gross).

But it's the cleanest kitchen in Oklahoma now.

I need to go get #4 back to sleep so that I can go to bed.

What annoys me most about ants...is that even after the cleaning they still come back. I just ask them "WHat ARE you looking for???" *L*

Congrats on your Tackle-it...
Happy Tuesday!

Looks great. I HATE ants. Hace you tried this product? http://www.terro.com/products.php?product=liquid_ant_killer

Of course, you have to make sure to keep it away from pets and kids, but it does work.

We used to pour vinegar around the outside edges of the house and that would keep them away. One of those old home remedy things.
