500 to 1

Early last week I got home from my day's obligation and went into the bathroom. As I walked in I realized that something was not quite right...

There had been an INVASION!!! That's right, an invasion! Ants were taking over my bathroom. They were ALL over the floor, bathtub, shower curtain, and walls. Not even joking, I think that there were more that 500 of the little devils. After the initial shock wore off I grabbed the Clorox Cleanup and went to war. Some of them were drowned, some got smashed, and others died from the bleach fumes. I even tried to sweep up some of the ones that were on the floor--not such a good idea, seeing as they can move fairly quickly...

Well after a long battle I thought I was the conquer, but then I saw a trail of ants leading up the toilet bowl. I lifted up the cover and there were SO MANY ants! The picture doesn't even make it look as bad as it was. This was taken after I had sprayed the stupid bugs, and half of then had fallen in the bowl and been flushed.




This is is a picture after I wiped the dead ants off the seat. Needless to say, this was a wretched thing I had to experience. There are still a few ants crawling up the wall, but I put one of those plastic-things-full-of-ant-poison in there, so hopefully they will carry that back to their colony, never to return.

Oh, the joys of living on my own...
