I'm convinced that we are slowly being overrun by ants. Every spring we get the occasional ants that find our way into our home...nothing that a shoe counldn't fix. This spring however, we are finally being assulted with their full numbers. It started off simple enough 5-6 ants in our bathroom, but slowly everyday there was more and more. It was slowly driving me crazy! I would kill all the new ants and spray the perimeter of the bathroom and not 3 hours later I would come back to a new batch of ants roaming around my bathroom floor. They then moved from the bathroom to our bedroom. I would find them here or there on a few clothes that didn't get thrown in the hamper. So I just started keeping the floor cleared of any debris thinking that would help. The other morning when I went to grab Finn (who is finally sleeping in his own room & doing wonderful) I noticed he had spit up on his swaddle blanket. I unwrapped him and left the swaddle blanket on our bed. I came back that afternoon to feed and lay the little man down for his nap, when I noticed our bed had been taken over by ants. They had smelled that sweet soured milk smell and made their way in mass. I may have freaked a little because I have never seen anything like it. The vacuum came out and I went to work sucking up those little buggers, washing bedding, tearing apart the bed, cleaning and vacuuming our entire room (it hadn't been done that well in awhile), and then we sprayed the entire perimeter of the basement. I'll admit, I feel a little violated! We are hoping that we can keep the ants at bay, but serisouly, does anyone have a full proof plan to keep ants out, because I'm completely grossed out!
