The Ants go marching one by one

Hurrah, hurrah.

Actually, not hurrah. Far from hurrah. Ants have invaded my apartment. They are all over the windowsills and the kitchen.

I have purchased "ant bait" and a citrus-based countertop cleaner. They aren't working.

The ants keep coming in. In their orderly lines, trailing their little fragile bodies across the windowsill, they march determinedly.

It's gotten to the point where my cat doesn't even notice them anymore. They have ceased to be Of Interest.

I can only hope that this is temporary.

Have you thought of purchasing a pet aardvark? Or would your cat become a green eyed monster?

Ooh, an anteater! What a good idea. There's a new baby anteater at the San Diego zoo. it clings to its mother's back with all the strength its got. It's very cute. Here's a video of its debut (third video down in left hand column):

But what would I do when I ran out of ants?
