We have crazy ant problems because I have two 3 year olds. We tried orkin and it was very expensive and didn't seem to be any more effective than anything else. We got some Bayer brand ant spray at Menards which we spray around the base of the house outside, and then the baseboards inside. It smells bad until it dries, usually 12 hours or so. Maybe you could spray before you leave so it has plenty of time to dry out? I don't know how it would impact Angel, but I would highly recommend it, it was less than $20 for a summer of ant free living.
I highly recommend Terro Ant Baits... It's gross at first , but it works better than ANYTHING I have ever used.... I try not to spray too much in the house but this stuff worked better than anything I ever tried...
Thank you Mary And there's no need for you to be sorry that the post office is behind in delivering. I've had a couple of other Big Givers that said the packages took longer to get here than they should have.
Thank you Emma
Thank you for the suggestion Jennifer. We can't spray inside, but even if we could, it won't work in our situation. Apparantly the ants are coming up the water or electrical pipes, and they enter through the outlet plate that is above the kitchen counter. When Tom went to talk to an exterminator, he was told that spraying the foundation outside would be useless too. It was very nice of them to tell us that their services wouldn't be effective, and to advise us the best way to try to eliminate them. We did know that it would most likely be a problem once it got warm again, because they told us that the scent trail they left before is strong enough for them to follow again (pretty amazing), but it hasn't been very warm here yet.
Thank you for the advise Nicole I'm not sure what the brand name is, but we got bait traps that contain borax, which they take back to the colony. We bought them last time, but it got cold & the ants stopped coming in before we used them, so we returned the traps. I would just feel better if we were going to be here to make sure it's working.
Your trip is so close! You must be so excited! Good luck with packing, and I hope you guys have a wonderful time!
Thank you Jessica
Mary - I'm sorry, but the packages didn't arrive today. I'm pouting, cause your note has me to see what you sent.
Clinic called today to see if we can come next week instead of tomorrow because only one Dr. will be in tomorrow, and "they didn't want us to wait for hours." We're usually the first to arrive at clinic, so we wouldn't be waiting any longer than usual. I explained that her labs needed to be done before we leave, but she didn't say we could go as planned. I may be wrong, but I have a feeling that the Dr. tomorrow is Angel's former clinic primary, and he is just avoiding us. She said she could squeeze us in Fri. Fri. is usually way busier than Thurs., and there are usually chemo kids that arrive way earlier than us, so we would probably be waiting much longer (which is another reason I think it's probably the former primary tomorrow). Fri. isn't good for Angel to miss school, due to her class schedule, and taking a quiz that she'll miss next week. I asked if we could just have the labs done in the town where her PCP is, so they arranged it.
I'm sorry about the delayed delivery, even called the postal service today. They said their delivery period extends to tomorrow, so I'm crossing fingers and toes that it does Here's hoping. Whatever happens it will be okay. You must be incredibly excited by now and incredibly busy getting ready. I hope you have a good few days before you go-with no ants!!
Thank you Mary I'm sure it will arrive in time.
It's been a day full of interruptions, and I haven't been able to pack at all. I'm determined to finish it tonight (besides what has to wait until Friday night). Hopefully I'll have time after that to post the pictures I'm behind on, but since Angel has some time tonight I'm going to have her go ahead and make her posts even though the pictures haven't been posted.
I am, thanks! I did start our TR today, so come on over and visit after you get home!
happy Tom is getting excited! love your new haircut!
such cute new big gives! really love the AK sets Andrea did!!!
hope you get all the labs figured out and Angel's #'s are good!
Thank you to MaryPoppins1964 for the wonderful eye spy bag and EPCOT passport book that you made for me. I always loved to play with an eye spy tube at our dentist's office, so I'm very excited to now have an eye spy bag to play around with. My mom wouldn't let me look for any of the items p), so I'm eager to try to find them while we're at the airports. I love the passport book. The little Mickey and Minnie pictures are so cute and it's neat how the background of the pages show a picture of the country that's represented. It's going to be so much fun to use it.
My faith in the postal system is least partly restored, Angel's packages are in Champaign!!! Thank goodness Now hopefully you'll have them tomorrow. Just a few days now, I'm excited for you!!
Thank you to PrincessMickey for the beautiful Aurora purse that you made me. I love how it shows the A for both Aurora and my name and that it had all of my favorite colors on it. I really like the style of the purse. I can't wait to use it on the trip.
Thank you to Blyssfull for the adorable tic-tac-toe game and wonderful bag of goodies. It was fun to open the goody bag I just tried the popping candy and it surprised me when they started making noise in my mouth. The Mickey themed tic-tac-toe game is so cute. It will be fun to play it while waiting for our flights.
Thank you Lisa Glad you're feeling better. Looking forward to the TR.
Thank you Mary Yay that the packages should be here later today.
These are the packages that arrived Mon.
The first one is from Blyssfull
She was determined to get the ball through the maze. Pretty sure she gave up though
She was so silly that day, joking that the Smarties would make her smarter
Always inspecting every little detail
Took her a minute to figure out what it was
I already said she was being so silly - here she is playing by herself & saying "Oooo, I wonder who is going to win" And I just noticed that her shirt says Ooooo, so it's even funnier.
Thank you so much Beth for the adorable Mickey tic-tac-toe, and the fun goodie bag with the notebook, ball & cup game, circle maker, card game, maze, ring, popper, marker stamper, and candy!
This one is from MaryPoppins1964
"Ooo, what's this?"
"A pretty pink turtle!" That's when I took it away from her , or she'd have found them all instead of taking it on the trip.
Just a few of the pages:
Thank you so much Cathy for the wonderful eye spy bag, and the fantastic EPCOT passport!
Sorry Sarah , I just got the pictures from your package cropped & ready, but I am just so tired, and have to drive Angel for her labwork this morning, so I need to go to bed. I'll make sure I get them posted today.
I'm so glad you like it, I had alot of fun making it!!
No worries, I know you're busy. I'm just glad it finally arrived!
Love the pictures and your comments about Angel inspecting each of her Big Give items! So many fun things to help make the time go by at the airport and during the airplane ride. The EPCOT Passport looks really neat too!
Praying for Angel's lab test that all will be well for her trip!
Thinking of you this morning. Hope all the numbers come back looking great
