Ant Smackdown

Went out yesterday to get some spider webs off my front door and saw possibly the hugest ant infestation ever. All the way around the house, up and around my front door, then down the front stairs. Tiny little black ones (so small you can see through ‘em).

Out came the Raid and washed the bad ants out.

I swept up the ant bodies and got a pile about six inches in diameter and maybe half an inch tall. Yes, that many ants. I probably should have taken a picture, but I was pretty grossed out.

Turns out they were coming from this hole near the side of the house. Flooded that with Raid and I haven’t seen anything emerging from the hole since. Here’s hoping I got ‘em.
