Ants in My Pants
Enter the newest addition to our household: a clothesline. I finally got around to hanging one up in an effort to reduce the family footprint (and gas bill). My excitement about being more green lasted a short two weeks. Come week 3, the clothesline had became the main highway for ants traveling from North Pomona to South Pomona. And it has pretty much seen non-stop traffic ever since.
I have seen other clothes lines here in Pomona, so I know it's possible to keep the ants away. I tried the chalk thing. Vinegar is usually my cure for everything, but I don't want my clothes to smell. Boric acid is out because I don't want it on the clothes.
Should I admit defeat at the hands of this army, or is there still some way I can win this war?
