I flush my bacon fat and chicken gristle in the toilet over summer, to stop the thick black line of them coming from the window to the bin (about 20 metres of ant highway)
I probably need to get a bokashi to get rid of it

Luckily i dont have an "invasion"- it seems like if I leave a stray crumb on the floor, there's like 10-20 ants around it. Like wtf...

I just have to be more vigilant and clean up quicker.


Might get a surface spray too just to be sure. Just spray around the place a little, see if that does the trick.

Will be buying some surface spary in the next couple days, and spraying around the place right before i leave for the beach.

Just looked in the kitchen, there is one solitary ant performing some reconnaissance work I assume.

The weird thing is- they're not going anywhere near my pantry where all the food is. And i have nfi where they are actually coming from. Its like they just magically appear out of thin air.

You will no doubt laugh at me but even though are an enemy I rarely ever kill ants like I would do with say a cockroach or a fly.

Was over at my parents place yesterday for xmas- the ants at their place are just ridiculous.

Ants on the dining room table. Like wtaf- with a table cloth on it too. Usually ants dont like material? I was killing em right before lunch was to be served.



And then later on I grabbed some leftovers (ants were pretty much gone at this stage) and put on the bench a bowl of lemon wedges. Unfortunately i forgot to but them back in the fridge, 5 mins later they were swarming all over them.

So gross. My brother the champ cleaned them up.


Meanwhile back at my place the ants that seem to appear everytime i drop a tiny crumb on the floor seemed to have gone. Not a sign of one ant, all i did was spray a tiny bit at the base of the windows in my living room.

I've had a few around in the kitchen but omg I made myself some vegemite on toast when I got home from work and I put the knife in the sink and by the time I'd finished eating and took the plate to the sink there were literally hundreds of ants going to and from the knife. They like Vegemite! I put out some combat for them instead :mad:
