    The flying ants here had a nice Borax :pblow: this evening. It's about time. We started discovering them last year right around the time that the weather was turning colder. We didn't have too big of an issue with them then and we took to vacuuming them up. The problem seemed to go away...

    Now I understand why most of the German houses around this area have their kitchens on the second floor! My base housing kitchen is on the ground floor. Every night I take out the trash, wipe down all kitchen counters, sweep and mop the entire downstairs. Pet food is upstairs. But I still...

    Every year around this time we get ants strolling into our kitchen. Not sure where they come from, they seem to be walking right in the back door. The only thing that has ever worked for me is the little bottle of raid syrup stuff that they take home and feed to the rest of the colony. I...

    Ugh...we have been seeing them - it's that time of year at our house. But I opened the dishwasher to put a few last things in it and they were everywhere! I closed it and ran it, but I know from the tv commercial that ants can live up to 10 days in water! What can I do to get rid of these...

    HELP! Some of you know we just moved a little over a week ago. When moving in we discovered that we inherited a massive flea problem with the house we bought (exterior of house, garage, and utility room). We had to have a professional come spray last week and they had to come again yesterday. As...

    Good news! I cleaned the kitchen from top to toe last night and when I removed all the things from the window sill I found the secret ants' cave. Just before we went to Sydney, I bought a moneywort plant and put it on the window sill - they were in there! There were trillions of them + eggs...
