Currently dealing with carpenter ants. First it was Spring release of queens, which is bad enough, but then we started getting the drones, so I knew a nest was happening.

Found where they were getting in and setting up a nest, but I can't reach it to see the actual location. Poisoned like crazy where I could, and that seems to have mostly worked. Sorry Buddha.

Currently going around the house sealing anything obvious.
Dear people who built this house in the 1960's... not sealing under an exterior door? Shame on you. [Mad]

Oh, happy Victoria Day! [ohwell]

Ants are everywhere in my property. They love the soil.

I did! They seem to be gone! Yay!

Although I had to order some poison from the USA to do it. (Advance Carpenter Ant Bait Granules)

Were the drones swarming Nitro?


Whoops wrong kind of Drones.
