Let the games begin?

Well over this past holiday weekend I took advantage of the nice weather and started my annual yard grooming. I trimmed bushes, weeded my flower beds, edged my walkways, & started the never ending fight against the ants. Last year we were plagued with ants, and I mean a plague of biblical proportions. I tried everything…Baits, sprays, home remedies, sacrifices, and all to no avail. I think the ants finally decided that they’d had enough fun with me and moved on to my neighbors house, but by that time I had bald spots where I had pulled my hair out.

This year I’ve decided to start the fight before they even show up, so I’ve sprayed the yard extremely well and I’m using insecticide spikes in the yard. Maybe I should buy an aardvark costume for my dog….heh? Oh well if anyone has come up with a sure fire method for getting rid of these pests I’d love to know about it. Meanwhile I’m keeping my fingers crossed and rubbing a four leaf clover, and hanging up horse shoes, and……………..!
