Here in Texas there is a notorious foe, the red ant. We have been fighting this small but nasty creature ALL SUMMER.
Although I'm a serious hater of toxic chemicals, we dropped pesticide granules in the yard and sprayed with Ortho Home Defense. I even resorted to taping up the spots they were coming in with packing tape. Yet they continued to come in. I wish I could show you how badly I was bitten. Praise GOD they didn't get the kids. They did get Ron, but he didn't react nearly the way I did. I did get this picture off the Internet that is very close to how it looked everytime I was bit.
Although I moan about it, I found MUCH worse pictures of red ant aftermath while trying to find pictures of my bites.
Pretty much nothing worked... until we found the James Bond 007 of sprays. Oh, and it's au natural!
Yes, I know I could've probably concocted something quite the same with my own brew of spices, but I didn't have these spices. So, if I'm going to the grocery, I might as well buy it already made, yes? BTW, if you Google this you'll find ridonkulous prices on this product that I didn't pay, so shop around.
Erin, you can get this at the Ft. Hood Commissary. Stock up, sister, you'll need it. :)
