Ants BEWARE!!!


As in "Finding Nemo" the fish fear Darla, the Ants within a 25 mile radius need to fear my daughter, Shaeler!

She has found a new obsession with finding new "pets" and keeping them. We recently have been attacked by a herd of insects and I sent everything I had to get rid of them. First we laid the "traps" and they seemed to just walk around those. Then I sent out my sercret weapon, Shaeler.

I introduced them to her and showed her how small they were and how cute they were. Then I just let nature takes its course. She loves to place them in a small plastic bag and lets just say the torturing begins.

She likes to pinch them in the bags and shake them. Then she sets the bag down and they slowly suffocate or die from starvation. Who knew such torturing was allowed at my home.

Happy to report that she and the traps have been quite successful. The ant train has slowly chooed to a grinding halt and the ants are getting the message loud and clear!

That's my little exterminator. I'm so proud. The best part is that it is all in the name of childhood discovery.

I remember that my obession was with lady bugs and 'roly polys'. I would jeep them in a paper cup or jar and torture them too.

I'm glad to hear that you have Shae to help fight the problem though. Elie is terrified of insects. She screams and totally freaks out.

I need Shae to come and hang out on my back patio. I guess it would just be easier to teach my boys to put them in bags and go to town with them, right?
