It’s November, winter has mildly set in, and yet we still have bugs.
Yesterday, I killed two mosquitoes in the kitchen before they decided to show me some love. Today it was a spider and a giant fly.
Since Spring, we’ve had a smattering of ants in the bathroom, which I surmise are affected by the drought and very thirsty. They’re everywhere — on the towels, in the bath rug, doing the backstroke in the bathtub, in the laundry basket. I’d stop them if I could find the entrance they use, but there doesn’t seem to be one, and ant traps are doing a bang-up job (har har).
This evening we followed a trail from the bathroom to the office, where there is no food and no water. Upon closer inspection of the closet with athletic supplies, we found the ants had eaten through both the Ziploc double-ply freezer bag and foil wrappers of nearly all our PowerBars imported from the USA. I need scissors and a bit of pull to get those wrappers off, how did they chew through?
When we tried to kill these super ants, they wouldn’t die. We tried to catch and release, they bit us; we smashed, they recovered; we dumped them in the bathtub, they swam away.
Apparently, ProteinPlus PowerBars work for ants too. Errr! 😉
