The attack of the Killer Ants

OK, so to preface this entry, we're OLD, and we don't see that well anymore, either one of us. Mrfoxaz has Graves eye disease & he sees double most of the time. I have parafoveal telangiectasias- and when I try to focus, the center part of my retina has some dark spots, so I can't focus for close vision. I have to kinda look off to one side.

So the other day, we decided to take a little nap. We snoozed for maybe a half hour or so and I woke up itching and scratching. I had big red welts all over me!
We took all the bedding off the bed and looked everywhere. I thought it must have been a Walpi Tiger- a bad bug that sucks blood from people & pets. After moving the whole bedroom around & crawling around with flashlight, mrfoxaz found an ant. A teeny little nasty ant. A pissant. Ouch!

The other day, we had pissants swarming the cat food, and we sprayed and vacuumed and cleaned and we hadn't seen any more. Ahh, but we were wrong!

Tonight, Mrfoxaz went in the bathroom to take a shower and the sink and counter was covered with those damned ants!! So we cleaned and sprayed and took everything out of the drawers & cabinets... Then went outside and dusted all around the foundation and vents.

It's been really hot the last week or so- over a hundred during the day- that's when the ants come in. We're waging WAR!!
