The Question Club
we've been infested with ants, teeny, tiny ants.|
they're all over the place.
they are (most readily) coming in through the door (there is very crappy weather stripping, and we can't replace it).
we don't have food sitting out, but we do have a cat whose food sits on the floor and they seem to be attracted to it.
i don't want to use sprays, powders, etc. because of our cat and because my health is shaky, so my question to you, dear TQC, is this:
how the hell do i get rid of them, reduce their numbers, keep them out, anything to stop my home from becoming a gigantic ant farm beyond wiping them up every five minutes?!
do any of you have any idea?
ETA: okay, so far tomorrow, i'm picking up cornmeal, chalk, ant traps, lemons, cinnamon, and a torch (just in case).
if this stuff doesn't deter the little bastards, i'm going to head to the store again for boxes, packing tape, and apartment listings.
