Ok it is official, Call out the troupees because the ants have to DIE!!!!!
No more shall I sit around and just watch as these ants co -exist with my family and myself. No more will we be subjected to bites on the skin and holes in our clothes. No more using of inferior bug spray or local alternative remedies… this is War!! Bring out the big guns… fire up the bazookas, because I plan to obliterate every single itsy bitsy, hard-working busy-body ant that exists in close proximity to my home and family.
What was the final straw that prompted this planned assault?
My son and them fought over some banana chips and they may have lost their lives in the battle, but they sure inflicted a lot of war wounds.
My son stuck his hand into an open bag of banana chips, which unbeknownst to him or me was riddled with ants, and stuffed the lot into his mouth! Milli and I were only alerted to the danger when she saw ants crawling on my daughter’s hand (she had also reached for into the bag).
If you have ever been bitten by an ant you know that it is not the most pleasant experience that you can have. Now add that to the fact that he had about 10 ants that refused to go down easy… latched on to the insides of his mouth, lips and yes tongue. I can only imagine how excrutiating it must have been for him (An ant bit me on tongue once and my tongue went numb, kinda scary), but he really was quite calm, I guess he had to be because both Milli and I were almost hysterical trying to get the ants out. The two that were attached to the tongue refused to budge. I iced them… I poked them, I rubbed them with a cloth, even threw liquid anti-histamine on them, nothing! Eventually I had to take his toothbrush with toothpaste and scrub the offensive bug and then only after minutes of torturing my poor teary-eyed, traumatized son did I get the fiend off and out of his mouth.
So I declare war! Sorry for the ant that tries to test this Momma!!
(Oh and my son seems fine, albeit it a little drowsy for the anti-histamine, he had two blocks of ice and was ready for school!)
