The ants go marching ...

Apparently, I'm not the only one who has been enjoying the warm weather we've had recently. A whole cluster (gaggle?) of ants were quite active as they marched into our kitchen.

Luckily, Shira's out of town, so she didn't have to put up with this nusince.

This time, rather than covering the kitchen with a chemical haze that does more damage to me than the ants, I did something different. I used my brain.

I said self, where are the ants coming from? Why not solve the problem at the source.

Sure enough, I went outside and found a line of ants marching up the side of the house. A few quick squirts of nasty ant stuff, and poof, problem (kinda) solved.

Amazing what happens when you actually think through the problem before acting.
