Personal Finance Review – Invasion of the Ants Edition
August 26, 2007
Our kitchen is being invaded by ants! We’ve had a few ants here and there in summers past but over the last week they’ve shown up in full force. Last weekend I bought some insect spray at Home Depot and sprayed around the outside of the house but it doesn’t seem like it’s done much good.
Rather than diminishing they seem to be spreading to more areas in the kitchen. We’ve never had anyone come spray for bugs before but are going to look into it. Any suggestions on how to handle the ants or some good companies to use? Anyhow, while I’m fighting ants, you can enjoy some money articles from last week.
