The lawn care folks were outside my window and apparently stirred up the ants.

One of them crawled up INSIDE my nose, but I killed it before he could bite me. Another one bit my at the crease in my arm at the elbow.

For the record, I don't eat in my room - ever. So about 25 to 50 of them were just milling around with no particular place to go.

They got on my bed and onto my pillows and probably into the blanket.

Any suggestions how to get rid of them?

Pray for me. hug.gif

An exorcism? batboy.jpg

No but seriously, salt is one thing that keeps ants away. Spread some across their entrance ways.

Oh and then kill them one by one. fatman.gif

If you need creative advice don't hesitate to ask. I take it explosives are out of the question?

How many ants do you estimate are hiding in your bedroom? I'd be going through the room very thoroughly. chuck.gif

I wouldn't normally recommend this to anybody, but you have nothing that burning down your house, and a Brazilian wax wouldn't take care of.

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???

Thanks, Jay. While there have been a few challenges, they are mild compared to the problems most have. Yeah, I might have died - there's that - but other than that minor detail, life is grand.

Make Papier-mâché mandibles and smear honey all over yourself as you crawl out the bedroom playing a catchy tune on a flute, leading those drones to an uncertain future outside.

Do you have a wet/dry shopvac? it so, put so water ( and other stuff if you like) in it, take the dust bag off, and vacuum up all those buggers and dump them down the sewer.

Biere.

Or call the DHS and say there are approximately 50 terry wrists in your bedroom and they'll come drone it for you.

Is that counting the several fire ants that may have climbed down into your ear canals unnoticed while you were sleeping and are now laying thousands of eggs deep inside your head?!

Not trying to freak you or anyone else out just facing a hard to face fact that insects have done that to people before many times and its certainly better to be aware of that disgusting and horrifying possibility than to be oblivious and unaware that it could actually happen...
