I would guess there have been anywhere from 10 to fifty at any given time I look. But are they the same 10 or 50? Hate to be racist, but they all look alike to me.
I've been spraying the bed with vinegar, and I put an electric dish warmer with a dish containing salt. In the salt is sprinkled several different essential oils.
That's how I keep insects, including ants, out of the kitchen. It works pretty well.
Meanwhile, I'm washing the sheets, pillow cases and comforter in hot water with lots of vinegar. Sprinkled some baby powder on near the floor jamb below the window.
Outside, I put some borax below the window where there does happen to be a few fire ant mounds.
They better be gone by bedtime, or out comes the blow torch! Actually I have idea what I'll do. Where to sleep???
