      For the last couple of days I’ve noticed ants on my kitchen counter. They are always left of the sink. I put down cornmeal because that is supposed to help but I see them avoiding the cornmeal.  

      Earlier, I saw where the are coming from! There is a crack (small space) between the (wood) cabinets and the wall. The other side of the wall is outside. I’m thinking if I seal off their entry way, I may be able to prevent them from coming in the house.

      How do I do this?? Caulk or grout? Any ideas?

        • Use a little caulk, but like Eva said, spray the foundation.

        • Annie my hubby says to use latex caulk seal the seams inside and outside this should work but make sure you be on the look out that they may find another way in. Hope this helps.

        • Ok ANTS are attracted to the water.... my ant guy says their thirsty I say the ant guy is crazy. But the ants only appear around my sink. Never around my food, trash or anywhere else. So maybe the ant guy is NOT crazy....

          Of course living in this bug infested south I TREAT TREAT TREAT and then TREAT some more (do you remembered I blogged about bugs awhile back?).  

          Sprinkle crushed red pepper around, then keep things super dry!
