Mike mentioned on Friday that he had had to do a full-scale ant-murdering and cleanup.
We’d been finding stray ants in the bathroom and a few wandering around the kitchen.
And then last night, I was moving the pickles from the world’s most gigantic jar (Costco) to some smaller jars, and I noticed the countertop was moving…
A (very) long story short, they had crawled all over on, in, betwixt, and between the espresso maker (visual: a sea of dead ants floating in the water reservoir) and up into the coffee cabinet and crawling up inside the hazelnut syrup.
We put out traps, sprayed, wiped up, sanitized.
However, I checked the other trap (which was closer to where the espresso maker was) and saw a HUGE TRAIL going back and forth to the trap and going behind the stove. UGGH. I have to figure out how to get behind the stove now.
