Ant sprays

Ant Spray - My house was infested. I knew that it was only temporary – my roommate told me so every day. The ants are only really active in the early spring and the fall. It did not make any difference as far as I was concerned. I could not put up with the little beasties for another day. I was slowly loosing my mind watching the ants go marching one by one through my kitchen. I needed some ant spray.

The problem is that both my roommate and I are pretty difficult people with very different needs. For me, cleanliness is key. I will use any kind of household cleaning product, be it ant spray, disinfectant, grease cleaner, bleach, or whatever. It does not matter to me whether or not it is toxic. I need the house to be clean.

My roommate is quite different. He will not use spray for ants. At summer camp when he was a kid, he would not even use bug spray. He is a natural food, chemical free, hippie nut. There is just no other way to say it. If there is even a small chance that something will be toxic, he will stay far away from it. He would rather live in filth than put up with ant spray, bleach, or the rest of it. Even natural ant spray is not natural enough for him.

Finally, I had had enough. We had agreed not to make any decisions about what household products to use without talking it over, but I was getting fed up. I waited until he was gone and then sprayed for ants. I literally covered every surface with ant killer spray. It was beautiful watching it work. As soon as the ant spray hit the ground, the little bugs started to meander in circles. Seconds later, they dropped dead. Best of all, they have not been back since.

When my roommate came back and saw that there were no more ants, he smiled smugly at me. “i told you they were only here for a little while,” he said. I only smiled, nodded, and agreed. I did not want him to know that I had used the ant spray while he was out. To this day, he has not figured it out. I sure am not about to tell him either! I figure that it is okay. What he does not know can not hurt him.
