I hate this time of year while sitting watching the tv I been itchy only to find ants on me, even rusty was growling at his bed and there were a number in there, I just opened the larder to find loads in there on the floor. I don't. Like using ant powder especially near the larder so I tried something I read about cinnamon powder, I sprinkled some along the front of the house and it seems to have stopped them coming into the living room so now I've gone around the back wall and into the kitchen, rusty did lick some of it up but so far it seems to be working there as well they don't bite or sting but boy are they annoying

These one are so small  it would take a hell of a lot to fill  up a tea spoon. if I was looking for a meal I'd  go for a wood ant which are a bit bigger

Rusty  must have had ants in his pants  the way he was jumping about and barking at his bed
