"the ants go marching one by one, hurrah, hurrah..."

This morning I was unpleasantly surprised to see some dark spots on my counter that turned out to be a swarm of ants trekking across the top of the dishwasher. Since there’s no food on my counter and very little in my cupboards, I was concerned about the advent of said ants.

It turns out there’s a lot of ways to get rid of ants. I’ve done some research and I’m going with a three-pronged approach: the Terro method, which worked well in a previous home infestation, accompanied by cinnamon and bay leaves. I like the idea of baiting individual ants who take the poison back to their colony to infiltrate and die. Also, cinnamon and bay leaves seem like such nice alternatives to chemicals and they probably can’t hurt.

cinnamon and bay leaves probably won't hurt you...but those ants have another thing coming.
