We've been inundated with those teeny little black ants this year -- and they BITE and it HURTS! I laid down a line of borax around the outside of the house and it's cut them down to nearly nothing.

Morgan got like 10 bites from them on his shoulder because they just popped up one day. He was laying on the couch and all the sudden he SHRIEKED bloody murder and cried. Thats how we found out they got in the house

Its the rain here thats driving them in. I didnt think to try Borax.

I've sworn pretty loudly, and Tallulah yipped when she got bit. Kharma paws at them. She can kill a whole bunch at one time with those big front paws of hers, lol.

Ugh I had a couple of ant bits down in Virginia. -.-

We removed the bean bag chair last night... and now they seem to be wandering around aimlessly. Can't find a path just yet.

We just drowned, bleached, torch fueled, cornmealed, and perimeter sprayed a HUGE pile that Jeremy fell into walking around the outside of the house. So if they survive it they must be superants.
