I have an ant infestation in my new house, around the kitchen annoyingly, which despite repeated attempts to exterminate with ant powder, is not showing any signs of slowing down.

Little bastards.

Take off, nuke the site from orbit.

It's the only way to be sure

I don't, unfortunately. I think it's somewhere inside the kitchen, somewhere that's inaccessible to mere mortals such as myself.

I have a pest controller coming on Thursday morning to sort the blighters out. I used him before, many moons ago, for the flour mite infestation that I had in an old flat.

I told him this on the phone, and he thought for a couple of seconds and then said "you used to keep tarantulas as pets, didn't you?"

Shockingly good memory!

I fucking hate ants. I also have a dog, so I’ve become familiar with Indorex which is a flea spray for around the house. Indorex (and other types of the same thing you can get from anywhere like Pets at Home. Basically it’s an insecticide for getting of fleas) is FUCKING LETHAL. It might not get the Queen of the ants but it’ll stop the fuckers dead in their tracks. It ain’t cheap at about £15 or so for a massive can of the stuff but it’s the only thing I’ve ever used against the army of little bastards that will ever stop them. I spray some outside around the house to stop them coming near and bugs just being dying all over the place. Yeah, it ain’t a friendly spray. It’s like agent orange for insects.

Yeah, I used Indorex for a flea breakout once. It was ridiculously effective.
