Combat to the Rescue

When I was little, I loved ants!  I loved to watch them scurrying here and there, always busy, always working.  I did reports on them at school.  I remember working particularly hard on a poster all about their little ant community.  I totally aced that report!

Now that I'm grown up, well.... while I admire their work ethic... I'm not a big fan of those little buggers.  Especially when they try and invade my home.  Nah uhh... don't like them one little bit. 

During the summer around here, those nasty little guys always try to invade my kitchen and my laundry room.  Combat Source Koll Max Ant Bait to the rescue!

I love this stuff!  It can wipe out a whole colony.  The ants carry the bait back to the colony and can pass it on to the queen.  Good bye ants, good bye queen.  I like that I can set the little ant baits wherever I need them and they are child resistant.  The poison is inside, not where I can get any on my hands.

I'm currently using it in my laundry room and kitchen and I have not seen any ants since I started using it!  Woo hoo!

I also used the Combat Source Kill Max Ant Gel.  It's a fast acting gel that will kill the ants, but not before the ants get back to the colony and share their poison prize!  I placed this where I knew the ants were getting in, in the laundry room and I have not seen any since.  I am one satisfied customer!

Combat is also holding a fun contest (you KNOW how I love contests!) that you can enter.  It is for $1000 and an assortment of Combat brand products!  It's called the Combat Bug-Free Backyard Bash Sweepstakes!  You can enter here!  We could all use a Bug-Free Backyard and oh yeah!...  $1000.  Woot!

So, are those little buggers bugging you too?  Want a chance to win some Combat Ant Bait?  Well, my dear reader, now you have the chance!  One of you lucky readers can win a box of Combat Ant Gel!

Ants are definitely a problem for us! There's currently some on our back porch thanks to some soda cans that didn't get rinsed, then sat in the recycling bin. It happens basically every summer though.

We do have an issue with ants around our front door. They do try to come in and we are always battling them in the hot weather.

For some reason we have large black ants that fall from our ceiling upstairs (only upstairs). It's very annoying.
