  1. In the spiit of camaraderie, my sink is currently devoid of dishes–yay! No wayward insects either…:)

  2. BTW – the spotless kitchen thing… I don’t think it’s necessary to keep ants away, as much as to keep them from coming in the first place. At least with my house. We had an ant problem in 2000. Lived spotless for awhile. Got rid of the cinnamon toast crunch (had 11 cereals, but that one SERIOUSLY attracts ants more than any other, I don’t know why). Layed perimeter poison around the entire house (which only lasts so long).

    They went away.

    Nowadays if i drop crumbs i just kick them under the counter and ignore them, the floor gets mopped maybe twice a year, there’s debris at any given time – and no ants.

    So at least in my case, a spotless kitchen makes them leave, but a dirty kitchen doesn’t make them come.

    We haven’t even had a mouse in awhile. I get 2.6 a year on average but none so far this year…
