No More Ants

August 26th, 2011 at 12:30 am

The boric acid I bought didn't seem to have much effect. I remembered that someone had suggested those Terro ant baits, but I delayed until I got an Ace $5 reward card in the mail.

The Terro seemed to work almost immediately! Certainly, by the very next day. It's been several days now, and no sign of the little buggers.

I saw a peacock in the yard today.He was rather nonchalantly preening but I think he caught sight of me at the front door.

Can you see his beady little head?

Yesterday, I saw a doe with her spotted fawn. They were ripping the leaves off a red-twigged dogwood out back. Amazing they haven't discovered the delectables growing outside the safety of the vegetable garden fence. The season is winding down so I'm not going to make a big effort to protect them.

Today was a no spend and no drive day.

    Wild peacocks? I had no idea! I've only seen them at a zoo. Smile

    Oh, wow, I meant wild TURKEY. I have no idea why i said peacock. It was definitely a turkey....sorry.

    Yeah Terro! It's fabulous; much as I wanted the boric acid to work, it never did for us either.

    You have to mix the borax with powdered sugar or the ants won't take it. You have to confuse them with the sugar and they think it is all sugar and then eat it and blow up and die. Borax on it's own won't tempt them. It worked for me when I did it several years ago.

    LOL .... I was thinking to myself, that appears to be one very ugly peacock. ;-)
