For the past few weeks, I’ve been squishing carpenter ants throughout the house. I’ve been finding one or two in various rooms. A few in my kitchen. I went out and bought Raid Ant & Roach Killer and sprayed the rooms they were in but I think all that did was push them to other rooms.
As a precaution, I sprayed the baseboards in my kitchen, including behind the fridge and oven, and underneath the sink.
My pantry is just outside the kitchen in the hallway. I pulled every food item not in a can or a jar or a sealed container out this past weekend and inspected. I vacuumed. I wiped the walls down. And this morning…two days later….
I open my pantry door to get out a plastic spoon for my yogurt and see my UNOPENED 2 pound bag of POWDERED SUGAR infiltrated by these fucking INVADERS. I grabbed the bag & twisted it as the damn things crawled down my arm. I pulled a Ziploc bag out of the box and sealed the sugar with the ants in it and tossed it out.
There must’ve been a pinprick of a hole in the bag or they burrowed through the plastic. I am so PISSED!! I just fucking cleaned!!
Now I’m at work. And imagining my whole house taken over by Them!
Here’s the trailer. Although, unlike in the movie, you cannot HEAR them as they prepare to attack:
In the immortal words of Blondie:
Giant ants from space
Snuff the human race
Then they eat your face
Never leave a trace
La la la la la, la la la la la, la la la la la
