Maybe you remember the recent antics of the ants,
and how we just couldn't keep them away from our bulletin board?
Well their determination finally exceeded my tolerance level,
so I stripped off all of your lovely Christmas cards and photos
and the background paper, and this is what was left:
Can you see all the paper dust on the board and on the stairs below?
And the board was littered with ants busily running out of one tack hole into another.
So we took our handy vacuum and sucked up all the white dust,
and any moving ant in the vicinity.
Then I sprayed it down with a body spray.
(Seriously, folks, ants really don't like the stuff.)
"Can you hear them, Mom?"
It was unbelievable.
With my ear an inch or two away, it sounded like the board was alive.
There was scurrying and rustling, and we realized,
we are hosting a nest of ants.
and even more dousings of body spray later,
it's now eerily quiet inside our bulletin board.
the ants might be gone...
Or maybe they've just moved back to the kitchen...
