Da past couple of weeks we've had some pretty heavy wet weather blast through da islands and every time it does we wondah wat insect(s) will make its way into da hale.
Normally, I spray an insect "barrier" around da perimeter of da hale but cause of da recent rains, I wasn't able to do da periodic treatment. Now I get one colony of red ants dat has made house in my house.
If you've evah battled ants before it's not like you just go and wipe away da couple dozen dat are there and pau, it's an ongoing war until you can Trojan horse them.
I bought ant bait (da kine in da plastic black container like da cockaroach kine) and laid it out in da line of their trail hoping dat they stop playing blind and go inside but it's not working as claimed dat da it'll kill da queen in a few days. I then bought a refill of a liquid bait (Terro) dat has always worked but only been successful on black ants. While more ants took da liquid bait than da dry bait, it still didn't complete da job. If anything, it just slowed it down and relocated da "trail" rather than eradicate da problem.
Aftah I come home from work, I jump in da shower thinking about doing anoddah Home Depot run and aftah I pau bocha, I grab da towel and start to dry off. I felt a few hairs on my back and tried to brush it off. I then felt a few more loose hairs on my arm, then my neck and it started to get a little itchy. All of a sudden I was on fire!
I had choke red ants in my hair, neck, arms, body and they stay pissed! Without tinking, I grab da towel trying to dampen da fire but realized dat they was in da towel as if it was their mound!
Wassup Wit Dat!
I dump da towel, jump back into da shower scrubbing furiously trying to put da fire out. Aftah all dat, I had welts like you wouldn't believe and felt like I was being punked or on a new reality show 'Pissed Insects'.
Just wait you suckahs.... I bite back!
Have you evah been attacked by insects? Has insects or bugs attacked your house? Do you have/make homemade remedies or you just go Home Depot/Lowes and buy da most intimidating box on da shelf?
