Kelly's Korner - And the Ants Go Marching Two by Two.....

Hey, All!

Well, I am back from my staycation all rested and refreshed!  The weather didn't cooperate as much as I would have liked but I did get a lot done inside.

My #1 son and I spent two days (at our pace which included lots of breaks lol!) cleaning, scrubbing and reorganizing the kitchen.  It looks so nice!  But the next morning after all this cleaning I come in and there are ANTS!!!!!!  All over the counters that I had scrubbed and disinfected with both Mr Clean AND bleach!!!!  What the ?????

So I got out the ingredients and whipped up a batch of my ant bait and put it out and within 24 hours they were gone.  If my loyal followers remember, I had a blog last year about this.  Newcomers, and if you don't remember, click on the link for the information.  This recipe will make way more than you need as you don't need to put out but a spoonful, but you can share it with friends and keep it in the refrigerator well marked for any other infestations you may have.

Now what does this have to do with appliances?  Well, those ants like nice warm places to nest and will get into your appliances.  In fact, the #1 son's girlfriend came over for the weekend and said she had them in her microwave at home.  So I sent her home Sunday with some of the super duper ant killer to put out.

Please remember to keep this out of the reach of children and pets, and may you have an ant free summer!

Have a great week!
