Ants always used to present a problem until I found that washing powder laid down stops them in their tracks from entering the house. So every month a fresh batch is laid down after vacuuming the old washing powder away. This time it was different, as luck would have it that we had some very heavy thunderstorm a couple of weeks ago. What I didn’t’ realise was that the rain had got inside and mixed with the washing powder and now it was as solid as a rock. It was ages chipping away at the rock based washing powder before is could be vacuumed up. More work for something that would have been so easy.
