    Little fuckers :pissed:

    They're all over my counter.

    Usually, I go outside and can see where they're coming in at. Not this time.

    Had a few in the kitchen. I set up the bait where they eat and bring the poison back to the colony. Haven't seen one since.

    I used to, until 3 years ago when I had the Orkin man spray for bees. They practically washed down the house in that stuff they use. No more bugs of any kind.

    Shouldn't you be doing sit ups and getting rid of that beer belly instead of worry about ants? :confused:

    I used to get them in the apt for a few years, but I guess they sprayed because I haven't seen them in about two years. But yeah, they are annoying.

    I believe they are carpenter ants and you need to deal with them or they will do serious damage. You can buy something at Home Depot and spray around your foundation. But If you are seeing them in the house a lot you may have to have an exterminator come in and drill holes under the sinks to apply poison near the water sources.

    I got a puppy. He wears himself out chasing the fuckers around. Then the fuckers get eaten. Win/win.

    ...those are moisture seeking ants. you probably have wet wood or rotting wood near by. the advidol i posted is the shit. will turn every one of those ants into poprocks. they take the bait back to the nest and it kills the queen. i havent had an ant around here in 3 years.

    Yes I get em. Last year I accidentally microwaved a few for like 30 seconds and they lived. I posted here and read the net and apparently these fuckers can live through that since they're so small and have an exoskeleton or whatever the reason is.

    Shiv don't use the ant spray you have pets it's very bad for them those traps recommended will work great. Fucking spring ants they pop up hills everywhere before long they're crawling up the back steps to the house.

    Outside just drown those fucking holes with a good shot of the hose.
