Ants have taken over my kitchen. They are small, black, and annoying. They have migrated to my bathroom and ruined a pan of brownies. So now this war is personal. Part of our lease pays for Terminix service to be provided once a month. We called our landlord and she said that we can’t have another visit but our whole complex has been affected and he’ll be bringing “special equipment.” So I have to wait until the first Tuesday of April and until then it’s full on war. I’ve cleaned the whole house up and down and they’re still here. Someone else suggested I could use Equal and they would eat it and die. Guess what? They ate it and then covered my counter top. I’m going to win this no matter what happens. Also, I want to know what the definition of “special equipment” is.
