Take all of our food out of the Pantry...
Make a trip to Target to buy Raid and
Put Food in Containers
Spray Raid EVERYWHERE
and Put Food Away
The ANT nightmare started this morning around 8:45 a.m. I was on my way out the door and I opened the pantry to take a package of oatmeal with me [just like every other day], and to my horror ants were everywhere... including crawling up my arm. Then came the SCREAM [and a few cursing words I won't mention] and the nightmare began.
I have never in my life seen so many ants... thousands! I called work and told them I was going to be a little late. Then I stood in front of the Pantry for about 5 minutes before I could get myself to begin the cleaning.
I pulled EVERYTHING out of the Pantry... started wiping and wiping and wiping. I had no Raid and no ant traps. After getting all of the food out, I decided to make a trip to Target to buy Raid, ant traps and containers for our food. By the time I made it back home, thousands of ants were back... it was as if I didn't even wipe out the cabinets. I still cannot figure out where they are coming from.
I had to throw away a few things, but thankfully most of our stuff was sealed and ready for containers! PS, I started wiping ants at 8:45 and it is now 11:30... I am sweating and NOT going to work :(
I spent my day cleaning and monitoring the situation in the kitchen. I also sprayed Raid on every window seal, door seal and put ant traps outside. I pretty much sprayed the entire parameter of our condo.
Hopefully the ants won't be back anytime soon. UGH!
