Last night I was putting away stuff from dinner and saw ants on the wall in our pantry (argh!), so I spent a while clearing out those shelves and finding out what they had gotten into. Of all the things in the pantry the thing they seemed most interested in was taco shells, strange I always thought they liked sweet stuff. They were also in a hot cocoa mix and some chocolate - now thats my kind of ant! But I hadn't realized they'd want starchy, not necessarily sugary things. I threw some other things away that I thought they might've gotten into and then shop-vac'd the hell out of them :) I'll have to keep an eye out for if they come back.
Its been so rainy this week that I assume that is part of why they came into the house, and the pantry is right near the back door and nice and dark (and out of Smokey's reach), so it was the perfect place for them to set up camp - until we spotted them. They hadn't been there long (thankfully) since they'd only made it up to the second shelf.
and oh yes, I did think that was the perfect title for this entry, how sad that I think of blog titles while I'm cleaning up!
