Carpenter ants. Big, black, ugly ants have been sighted in my kitchen. The kitchen no less! This means war. I've broken out the variety of poisons and sprays around the house, shot crevises between the house and the deck, strategically placed baits and cleaned just about everything in the kitchen. The battle plan is to deprive them of any food, while slowly killing them with the poisons. And later.....some insurance is needed too. Going to get some Boric acid and mix with some honey and place that around too. Oh, and later, going on a search and destroy mission for an outdoor colony.
Overkill? Maybe, but I have no competition this weekend, so I have to stress about something!
