113/366 battle

Yesterday was our first truly warm day of spring. It was nearly 80°.

Today, I found ants on the kitchen counter—our annual proof that spring has officially begun. And so we begin our annual battle to keep the ants outside. Sigh.

Today was also ridiculously warm and sunny, and it was a busy, productive, happy day. So i can't just leave you with a pesky ant. Here are some tulips. I'll take tulips as proof of spring over ants any day.

I found ants on Cate's floor this morning. Blech. My dad is an entomologist by the way. I think he'd love your ant picture.

Ah les fourmis !
Je commence toujours par les chasser avec du vinaigre blanc, en général cela suffit pour qu'elle se contentent du jardin.. malheureusement, parfois non...
pour le moment, cela a suffit...

We clean up their trails with white vinegar, but I've never used it on the ants directly. Do you pour it on their nests outside, Sophie?

no just at the door of our house for exemple or where there is a hole in the wall, we live in an old stone house, their nests are too difficult to find isn't it ?
