The ants led a Ho Chi Minh Trail across the kitchen counter this spring.

Husband bought pesticide to put on ant hills outdoors. Didn't work.

Wifey used cornmeal on ant hills. Worked, plus it's a green alternative and cheap.

Husband kept squashing ants indoors by the hundreds and ordered kids to squash ants. Then cursing, went to store and bought ant traps and placed liberally around kitchen. Didn't work.

Wifey calmly got out the caulking gun, searched outside of house along kitchen wall to discover where they were entering house, and caulked the wee crack in the stone.


Ants: 0
Husband: 0
Wifey: 2
