Unfortunately, it seems like winter has stopped pretending to exist and completely given up and it's intermittently floating up into the 70's every few days. So earlier this week I went to put the recycling out on the curb and.... THERE WAS AN ANT. He was sitting in the recycling. He was pretty sluggish - probably just woke up and came out of the ground and was enjoying his first good meal for months.
Then it kind of got cold again and ... I mean... he was outside, so... not so awful yet, right? But... today... I found two dead ants in my living room. THEY ARE BACK. I begged the husband to put out bait, but he said we should avoid attracting them unnecessarily. Maybe I can convince him to spray the foundation this weekend at least.
I will now spend the weekend feverishly cleaning my house so as to not attract them.
Also... I have no idea how they wound up dead on the floor??
