So I have this problem which I need your help
About these Aunts who make me yelp.
The problem is like this, please tell me what to do,
To all those who advise me, I thank you!
You see, there are these Aunts who drive me mad,
If I can get rid of them, it would make me glad!
They come in my house without permission,
Their favorite hangout seems to be my kitchen.
From my food they eat which is not okay,
But directly from my plate – I say no way!
But that is not as bad as when they come in my bed,
They touch me on my arms, legs, stomach and head!!
Even when I chase them away with a big whack,
They don’t stay away, they keep coming back!
I can’t stand them or sit them any more,
If I don’t get rid of them now, I’ll go crazy for sure!
I tell them “Go away”, but they don’t seem to hear,
That they bother me, they don’t even care!
So if you know what I can do to make them go away,
Please tell me what to do so I can start today!
As I was reading over this poem of mine,
I realize I made a mistake that isn’t so fine!
Instead of ants, Aunts I did write,
It is crawly, yuchy ants that I am trying to fight!
My Aunts are all young, fine ladies,
Children of my Bubbies and Zaidies!
But these pests I speak of are not related at all
If I don’t get rid of them soon, Pest Control I will call!

Wow i was thinking how inappropriate their conduct is!! thank you for telling me about the spelling mistake though i kinda guessed it after awhile very very funny sidi.September 5, 2012 4:22 am at 4:22 am #1032678aurora77Participant
That is a great poem SiDi! I once had a similar problem in my kitchen; I did end up spraying Raid. But the funny part of the situation was that, when I first discovered the ants marching in through my dining room, my poor, beautiful, normally bold cat Cleocatra was besides herself: she took one look at the line of ants and meow-howled at them, then jumped high over them. I tried to convince her that she was a miniature lioness and that the ants would tremble should she roar, but the ants continued to have her petrified 🙂September 5, 2012 4:23 am at 4:23 am #1032679Shopping613 🌠Participant

Don’t use Raid — it doesn’t get rid of the nest. If they’re the little ants, use Combat Source Kill Ant (formerly called Combat Ant Killing Gel). It comes in a syringe.
If they’re big ants, they’re probably carpenter ants. You may want to use a professional exterminator for these, since they can actually damage your house.September 5, 2012 10:33 pm at 10:33 pm #1032681
Thanks everyone for your help! Anyone know what Sano® products are? K200, K300… I don’t know what they do cause the bottle is all in Hebrew…

Neither are yucky ants that are all over my table. Tons of these tiny crawling things all over the place.

Raid is worse. Try living outdoors.August 4, 2014 9:26 pm at 9:26 pm #1032688To be or not to beMember

I don’t support the death penalty for annoyingness.September 18, 2014 11:07 pm at 11:07 pm #1032692
UPDATE: When I started having this problem again (about a month ago) I purchased Sano K ?? ???? (Multi Killer) – a yellow with blue spray can – and sprayed the table, around the table, windows and doorway. Since then, I have not had these unwanted visitors, B”H! Thanks for your help!September 21, 2014 7:22 pm at 7:22 pm #1032693RandomexMember
