The Return of the Revenge of the Sequel of the Ants

June 12, 2015 § 1 Comment

Damnation and darnation, now we have another population of ants coming in! The ones by the back door haven’t come back. (Hooray for that!) Now we have ants coming in from the opposite corner, though. Grr!

The ants are coming in through cracks in the window corners and under the window sill above the sink, and getting into the dish drainer / dish washer / sink area. Out came the cinnamon again.

Ant Deterrent Window Sill

We sprinkled cinnamon into the window corners, and I’ve since patched the cracks under the sill. So far, so good; they haven’t been back through there. However, the ants’ access into the cabinet under the sink is more difficult to deal with.

Ant Deterrent Under Cabinet

We’ve laid down baits and tried to “board off” the front edge of the cabinet with cinnamon. The cinnamon edging didn’t work, unfortunately. Since the photo above, we’ve pushed the cinnamon into little mounds around the three pipe holes. That seems to work better, although we’re still getting scouts. We battle on!
