Use cinnamon for ants.  Buy the big cheap bottle at the warehouse store and sprinkle it where ever their trails are.  We put it across the doors.  If you have a steam cleaner and know where their trails are, use that to steam the trail.  That messes up the molecules they put down to follow.  Then use the cinnamon. 
Just keep in mind-- ants eat termites (or maybe their eggs?) So you may not want to get rid of all the  ones in your yard-- just stop them from getting into your house.

SilverMoon...I like your crocheted Grug...nice use of fun fur!  Smiley ...and to stay up til all hours to finish...*pat on the back!*

I must take a side-trip and have a go at ami-crochet! =]

MrJ is totally pulling out the 'big guns' on the ants...and he tells me there is carpenter bees out making holes in the deck, too! Never heard of such things.  New house...new critters.

I know that peppermint oil deters ants. If you brush it around window sills, they won't come in but it won't kill them Cheesy

And clove oil/cloves deter houseflys. Plus everything smells lovely Cheesy

ok I think I might have this right, maybe, if not I will try and fix it. but here is a pic of my first attempt at embroidery........



I've also given up on finding my rotary cutter so I spent all last night (and will again tonight) cutting fabric into 6 in squares so I can start sewing it up into patchwork fabric. Luckily we just got 3 huge boxes of VHS tapes from Tedibear's mom so I have plenty to watch! LOL

You inserted HTML; you need BBcode for it to show up like you want.  It looks like this:

There's a button on the toolbar - it's the one on the second row, all the way to the left.

I'm going to have to try some of these ant solutions. I have mutant ants or something. I don't think the last people moved out. I think the ants ate them and their stuff.

I like the embroidery, too...very nice.  The stitches look great.  =]
So impressed w/embroidery on everything from t-shirts to cotton/linen fabrics...I seriously never got past the aida used for cross-stitch Wink

...and I was hoping to find a pink elephant ami to play w/this next week.  I think I have a stuffed animal pattern for one in a Debbie Bliss book around here...=]
But, I think that I'm going to try a couple of kitties that I've found from here @ Craftster...

The ants are back in our apartment too  Undecided To think we avoided the seasonal ant rush - silly me.

Anyway, I'm currently working on my first coptic bound book for a Book Arts class I'm taking at school right now, and it perfectly fits the June challenge because I was initially inspired by this post

http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=368118.0

I love love love papercutting and put my own little twist on it for the project. I'll definitely post pictures when I'm done.
