So we are currently living in a VERY TEMPORARY house. It is to say the least a huge sacrifice and a huge adjustment from what we are used to. There are a few major major issues like the roof leaking, mold, and an occasional mouse.... yikes!
The one thing that is driving me batty are the little black sugar ants! Yes Sugar ants.
These things are seriously straight from the pit of &$%#. Yes fill in the blank, the preachers wife said a curse word.
These little babies are attracted to anything... If you leave a baby wipe out that has some form of sugary substance it will find a way in thru the wall or window seal or shower and make a line. Yes, just like in the books when we were little the ants marching to the happy picnic. I more like to think of them like in Honey I shrunk the kids. Remember those HUGE ants... yes those... that's what I'm referring to.
So the other morning my 4 year old comes into my bathroom and calls for me. I said yes, he said momma when did you paint polka dot's on the wall ? Uh yes i got in there very quick and realized a wall in my bathroom was completely covered in ants. AHH. Let me just tell you, that even when you kill them they find a way back. We are still dealing with the polka dot wall several day's later! The culprit to bringing the ants in... a single solo grape in my trash can. Please remind me that my 22 month old does not know any better...
One more ant story... So i was huge 9 months prego with my first little angel and we were cleaning out the closet in the spare bedroom... you know the one you NEVER go in until you have to. Yup that one. Well i opened it up and there was my wedding gown all zipped up (because you know i never had it cleaned). I though aw how fun to unzip it and open it and look at it! Uh think again..... it was covered in sugar ants.... Yes please scream or gasp with me as you read this... because I seriously freaked out. Me in all my glory with a huge 9 month prego belly flipped out! I grabbed the dress and spent the next several hours peeling and picking off these annoying little black specks off my dress. I will not even tell you who told me to spray RAID on my wedding dress.... lets just say it was not my hubby (smart man)!
The reason those darn ants were on there in the first place was kinda my fault... On our wedding day i blessed my husband with the cake smash and well he got me back and some loose cake went down the front of my dress... to my knowledge i thought it was all good.. sigh.
So tell me what is your worse insect, rodent horror story ?
