The traps are set

Yesterday afternoon the FedEx man arrived with the ammunition I have been waiting for, the Terro has arrived. 



The traps were immediately set out at various locations  and they seem to be doing the job. I ran the traps last night and again this morning and saw no evidence of any wildlife any where near them. I am feeling so confident the I plan on opening a package of cookies later this afternoon which will be the ultimate test. A note to Glenn who suggest the borax paste the other day, Terro contains about 6% borax so your formula has real merit. 

Today is the first day of the college football season with the first game starting at 8:00 am this morning. I'm sure there will be plenty of entertainment today as we assume the weekend posture while enjoying the good life.

  4. I guess it's easier to sweep up dead ants than it is to dispose of dead mice. Ant droppings are probably minute as well. :)

    1. We're on the way, they are still encamped just outside the perimeter waiting to strike.

  6. So, are the cookies a peace offering for the ants to leave you alone?

    1. Not at all, I'm stingy and refuse to share. This is what got the war started in the first place when they helped themselves to my cookies without asking.

  7. Just to be on the safe side you can put the left over cookies if there are any in the fridge.
    But I hope you have won the war.

  8. I remember many, many years ago my first encounter with sugar ants & my cookies! I was in my very own apartment as a young adult. My first real place that I could call my own with no one else living with me! Yay...but boo, I wasn't alone. The %$#@ ants were eating my first box of cookies!!!
    Ha! Hope you've gotten rid of them for good.
