Since yesterday, I have resprayed the perimeter and I have Raid ant baits around Mel including in the pantry. Last night I went to retrieve a cookie that I had stored in a Rubbermaid sealed container only to find the little critters had invaded the cookie cache, even though the lid was secure. Now I'm generally an easy going guy, but when you get after my cookie stash you have really yanked my chain. The cookies are now in the dumpster saturated in Raid and what is really the topper, the ants had to pass by a Raid ant bait to get to the cookies. After this encounter I got on the internet and found Amazon carries Terro and a supply will be here Friday. It's a good thing I placed the order, because today's trip to Wal-mart yield nothing that looked like it was meant for getting serious with the ant horde. We will continue to try to hold the onslaught back with Raid until the reinforcements arrive.
After all this activity this morning it seems like a siesta is in order as I spend the rest of the afternoon enjoying the good life.
