It's that time of year again, the ants are shopping for food... in your kitchen. Unfortunately, you eat there, so you don't want anything toxic for killing them, so you squash them. However, this year, a new ant killing spray has been found... and it is non toxic, instant results, and self cleaning. And most everyone already has it in the house. Enough yapping you say... you want to know... it's Windex. :)

Definitely give it a try here also. The little ant traps do not work at all here.

Don't forget streak free. :rofl2:
It also seems to clean up their little scent trail so they can't use "Ant GPS" to find your food.

Windex has found another use in my house. If you have a printer that the ink has dried up in the print heads, it dissolves it very quickly. (use an eyedropper, not the stream nozzle)

This is going to be a tough summer with ant's, ticks and other insects. Thanks for the tip Casey. I think it is time to spread the insect killer in the yard.
