|Summer in my neighborhood...Blue Angel in the
sky and ants in the livingroom!
How is it that the ants move in and the plants die when I turn my back? I went shopping yesterday. I got up this morning to find ants in the kitchen and the flower pots on the patio dried up. How does that happen in one day?
My daughter-in-law made a mixture of the essence of mint oil and water that is suppose to repel the ants. I am giving that a try.
We found a herd of polite ants that decided to use the front door as their entrance and that was the day I became the ant murderer in the family. I used insecticide and the mint spray. It was all guns blazing around here. They haven't come back. I don't mind sharing but really, there was food by the front door? I don't think so.
As for the plants, I have come to a place where I am watering when I am watering and the plants can just live or die. It is their choice not mine.
I will tell you this though...I am not turning my back again this summer. It was a bad idea.
I'm just saying!
