    Ants!

    Advertisements
    We have a huge ant problem! They're everywhere! We don't leave food out, I clean the counters constantly (because we have a cat who likes to get up on them), we change the garbage frequently, and we have at least 10 of those little ant bait thingies all over the house.
    They won't go away!
    We've tried paprika, cayenne pepper, and vinegar.
    Any other suggestions?
    It's gross to see them swarming on the counters and I have a bite on my leg! I can't take it anymore!

    I read that if you draw a chalk line they will not cross it so try drawing some at your doors

    None of that crap worked for us and we tried everything. I gave up and called a pest control company and have regained my sanity.

    I'd try the chalk thing, but I don't know where they're coming in at!!!

    I got Bengal. It's a spray, but it's more like a fog, because it's not sticky or wet when you spray it. It worked like a charm! I had them EVERYWHERE in my old apartment, and nothing else worked. It costs about $14 a can, but it's worth every penny!!!

    Please be wary of what you post remember OPSEC is not just another acronym.
