how to kill ants...for good

So, the winter was so mild and lovely! Right?!?  Good then, bad now.  We live way out in the country, on a dirt road, right near a lake....we have bugs, lots of bugs and they usually don't bug {punny} us until later in the year.

The first little f-ers were the rolly pollies.  The were in the front bathroom and were super pissing me off.  Audrey actually picked one up and through it in the bathtub...yuck.

Then, we ate dinner out side yesterday and the freaking mosquitoes are the size of birds already.  This wouldn't bother some (Mr. TSL never gets bit).  Hayley and I usually look like we have chicken pox because we are so covered in them.  I am a let's see how fast we can rip the flesh off and leave a scar! Awesome.
I found a product for that and will yack about that in a minute.

Ants-that's the most recent one.  At our old house, we always had them on the counter in the summer.  It was a super old house and I could never figure out where the little turds were coming in.  I tried all the
"organic and earth friendly options,"  nothing freakin' worked.  We recycle and compost and eat as organic as possible, but when it comes to bugs in my house....THEY CAN FREAKIN' DIE!!!!  A miserable death, like I hope they are thinking, "I knew I shouldn't have gone inside."  I always leave bugs alone outside, I tell the girls not to kill them because that is their home and they are doing their jobs.  Come in my house and it's a different story!!

Back to the Ant deaths.....
A friend suggested I use Terro, she said it's at Wal-Mart in the lawn and garden with all the other bug junk.
I bought it and followed the directions.  You just tear off these little cardboard pieces and put a few drips of this clear fluid.

 Let me tell you, if you see 6 ants on your counter....there are hundreds more you can't see.  Just put this stuff down and see how many come out to try's the shiz, in the ant killing department.  

Terro did not pay me to write this, just sharing something that works for me.  Plus, while I was writing this I googled an image for the Terro Ant Killer and found this:

I am so excited to try this, you have no idea!!  I want to roll in the little mosquito repellent granules and sparkly like Edward Cullen!!

-Make your life beautiful!!
