My fellow friends (that live in my computer) and I have long forgotten the Nailed It/Failed It Pinterest Challange. Life happens. Today I decided to post this on my own.
Ants. We have them. We have lots of them. They get into our house when it rains. They get into our house when it doesn’t rain. They crawl up the outside of our house, down our sidewalk, and under our cars. It’s endless.
I found on Pinterest information on how to stop ants from at least entering the house. Use chalk. That’s right just plain ole chalkboard chalk. Just make a line with the chalk where you do not want the ants to cross and they will not cross the line. HA! Yeah, right.
Weeellllll, lookie here! I have a long line of ants crawling up the outside of our home.
I used green chalk so it is visible and look what happens! Boom! Instant road block. Immediately the ants start piling up at the line and will not cross it. What I found really amazing, but you can’t see it here, the ants above the road block turned around and came back to help the blocked ants. Unfortunately, they couldn’t cross the line either.
Just to make sure this was working, I placed another line. Now this confused the ants more. They could not go forward or backwards. I was surprised to see the ants could not figure out to go left or right to get out.
And because I am mean…..
This is so totally awesome and fun!
Still don’t believe me? Look at this “professional done” lol, video.
