Time for Tiff to explore the other side of her sexuality?
The boric acid stuff works only on small colonies. We’ve gone through about ten boxes of that stuff and all we’ve done is bring in more ants, both to feed on that as well as explore more areas of the house. It’s really annoying to sit on the toilet and then have ants bite you on your balls.
I suspect the best thing to do is to keep the house as clean as possible, and use blue juice (e.g., windex) on all ant trails. As long as the scout ants find nothing you’ll have a small ant load. That’s the key point: ensure the scout ants find nothing. Bag your garbage. Keep the kitchen counter, food tables, and stove clean.
That’s what I used to do but my wife really wanted to try the boric acid “safe for humans” ant killer.
I remember flooding a small planting area, roughly 3 feet x 8 feet out front, to soften the ground in preparation for digging it up. Turns out there was an ant colony in there. The entire sidewalk was packed with ants, who were also carrying their larva out from their flooded city. Basically a carpet about 4 feet x 15 feet solidly anted. So the feeble small amounts of boric acid in the tiny traps would have zero effect on that colony.
So you beat your children if they steal, lie, or curse at you? They don’t do these things in a vacuum — there’s a reason — perhaps you.

Even when everyone was told to repeat what they heard as accurately as possible, and when this was new to everyone so no trolls, the accumulated error was fascinating.
If only Monty knew about q-tips…
That name breaks the meter, so I used Greg’s last name!

What gorbag said — the second statement causes the first to disappear, so no contradiction!
Of course, I’d probably write something like P=NP in it and “a buildable design for a paradox-free FTL drive appeared on my desk, and the book disappears permanently.”
At my age, 1991 and 1961 seem fairly close together… but you’re right. Silver coins disappeared from circulation around 1979 as the price of silver went high enough it was more than worth it to melt down the coins.
