Revenge of the Flying Ants!

Imagine spending a lovely day with two friends - breakfast at a place called Wild Eggs, sharing stories, laughing, giving a few bucks to the Horseshoe Casino penny slots, and upon arriving home and going downstairs to let the dog outside . . . . . . . . .










We're talking on the floor . . . . . . on the walls . . . . . on the window . . . . . on the cabinets . . . . . . on the dryer . . . . . .




I had no idea what they were, or where they were coming from! Your brain doesn't work when you see something that gross! I didn't know what to do first. Stepping on them didn't kill them, I was afraid to spray the entire room with the only thing I had - wasp spray!

I gathered up all the rugs and threw them outside, shut the door so they couldn't go in the family room, and started smashing them with a paper towel. Yes, I am woman, hear me roar!

What seemed like hours later, I was sweating profusely, and feeling like they were crawling all over me! When I went outside, I saw the Head Mama Ant trying to get in the window - probably to protect her 2,000 wailing children.

Did you hear me roar? I smacked her with the pooper scooper. And then ran to get the camera! After all, that is some good blogworthy stuff!

OMG that is an ugly flying mama ant!! 2000 creepy crawly ants that would make my skin crawl too but you gotta get them suckers out of the house or you would never have any rest. hehe Agree with you thank God they weren't "snakes" then it is time to evacuate the house and call in the big guns.

Did you scream while squeezing the life out of the little buggers? If I kill a bug, I scream. It just happens.

You are definitely braver than me!

Good god Laura, I would have freaked out too! Luckily you are woman!! I'm more of a mouse in these situations.

We had something like that happen with flies in our guest bedroom one time and couldn't figure out where they were coming from either. Yikes!!! Brent was on it. He's our official bug person. Got a bug? Call daddy!

Hopefully the issue is under control by now. GROSS!
