Ants are trying to move into our house.
Specifically, they’re trying to add our dining room to their territory. They come out from under the baseboards somewhere and then fan out to search for food.
I repeat: they’re in my dining room. You know, the place where we eat every.single.meal.
The dining room is carpeted (don’t ask me why- previous owners of this house did some crazy things).
I have two small children.
I vacuum after every meal and yet the ants always, always, manage to find something to keep them coming back.
I feel like I’m Sisyphus.
But, as I keep reminding myself, it could be worse. Back in November 2015, when we discovered that indoor cats can too get fleas, I was vacuuming the entire house every day, including all furniture and baseboards, while pregnant with P.
This too shall pass.
But they sure are a pain right now.
Any suggestions on how to get rid of ants when they’re in a spot where you can’t use a trap?
