Ants: This means war


I've had it with this particular ant colony that's living in my home. Today, I wake up to find that the ants had blatantly, disrespectfully invaded my... Crumpy. I need me Crumpy during exams you see, and so going without it for a day can be psychologically... discouraging.

Anyway, that particular invasion is the last straw, and I'm determined to get that colony to take a hike and get settled down somewhere else or, yes, exterminate them.

Problem is, I don't know how. I've BOP sprayed the place once before though. The good that did, might as well've been air freshener. Minus the smell I guess.

The little knowledge I have of ant colonies stem from Deborah Gordon's speech. Aside from being awed that she'd studied those incy-bitsy little buggers for twenty years(!), she didn't give a clue as to why exactly they'd survive for so bloody long!

Eye for an eye antsies... you can't eat me crumpy and get away with it I tell you...
Yes, off to read about analysis and decision making again. Wait till me exams are over... one day soon...

Sloppy national security made 9/11 possible and then George took his BOP spray to Iraq.

try karanfoo, thats what my granma does. she puts karanfoo in the sugar tappu. or try getting kandaa? maybe them big buggers will scare off the lil ones. and i really dont think kandaa likes crumpy.

Kerosene does wonders. Pour into their colony and they dieeeee. Or you could try talking to them...

try putting some sugar in a corner of the room ...
the ants will be come to that corner and away from all your food ...
that use something stronger than BOP spray and you'll be A-Okay ...
And don't listen to .mini ... dont put crumpy in the fridge ... it becomes kinda hard and difficult to spread on bread ...
crumpy is best enjoyed in paste form ...
hehe ...

Aright. Listen up young'un, short of nuking the little peeps there's my one sure fire way of committing mass genocide on those defilers of the sacred crumpy

Put a little petrol (aka. Saafutheyo) on their base, remember me and do a warcry while ur doing it. Goodluk o righteous one.

Use cloves around yummy stuff/inside the sugar bowl. Then buy a packet of those tiny little stick things they sell to get rid of ants and do what the instructions say. Those things work miracles. I wouldn't take it too personally though, those ants don't care or know about your love for crumpy. Or do they o_O They survive because they have strength in numbers and because individual losses don't matter to them (or do they? we'll never really know eh.. o_O).

Your new buddy pic is so not you :(

You know, probably protesting about the War on Maatha's cupboard in ant land and going on about how its really all about the crumpy.

Is ant repelling/killing chalk available there? You have to clean the area (e.g. wall) and draw lines where they travel.

since we're talking about ant mass genocide here,i wonder who's commenting on the antses blogses,with great ideas on how to invade maa's crumpy...

Kandaa are just soldier ants--the male variety. If anything, the small ants, female worker ants, depend on the kandaa for protection and other things... (and not reproduction, in case you're wondering).

Try something non-destructive. Like chalk-lines (normal, school-board chalk). It works some of the time, but never all of the time. And besides, Deborah Gordon also said that its not pesticides that keep ants out of your home, it's the weather.

So, stack up on chalk and roll with the insectile flow.

You take that jar of crumpy.
You lay in wait.

And them li'l buggers will come marching...

and you stomp on them.

I can actually imagine you; with your triumphant face and medusa hair; stomping on ants. Sigh. I bet it'd feel good.
