  • I have ants really bad too. i just sat my coke can down beside me and picked it up and it had like ten million ants on it. it makes me so mad. you can spray bleach under your house and around it. thats what we have to do every year. i am making my husband do that tom. you can also use seven dust if you can find the ant beds.

  • Yeah its really gross to me and really hard to keep them away with a two year old dropping food in the floor. yesterday my dd dropped her sucker in the floor and i noticed she did not have it anymore and told her to go get it and put it in the garbage if she dropped it somewhere she came back and said look mom and her arm was covered with ants i flipped out and put her in the shower. she got mad at me because she said she "wanted to play with them and i washed them away"

  • we get a cinnamon/ clove spray made by ecosmart. we spray once a month, and try very hard to not leave food around. it can be hard with a few lo's running around!

  • find the ant hills outside your house, pour kerosene into them and lite them on fire...but not with the kids around....my husband does this and it takes care of them all year...if you do not want to do that then go get TERRO it is ant bait you set out around your kitchen in places your kids or pets won't find...they eat the poisen and bring it back to the nest
