Back in September when I was in Sarasota, Florida, I picked up some very unwanted guests / pests. Tiny brown ants decided they wanted to explore my little home on wheels.
At a home depot I found a natural repellent / agent of ant demise made with lemon grass oil. Using it in and around my RV, I thought they were gone.
But as I travelled across the country, the ants kept sending little scout parties out from whatever nest they had secured in the under carriage. I kept spraying the lemongrass and added another gentle (to me) way of asking them to leave called Cedarcide containing natural cedar oil.
Across the Continental Divide in New Mexico, in the Mojave Desert of California we travelled (not to my liking) together. The ants never got into any food; they just seemed to be on “walk-about.” One here, one there, wandering on floor or counter.
These Florida ants were tenacious buggers. Yes, past tense (I think). Now after three days in northern Nevada with temperatures at night below freezing, there is no sign of them.
I almost miss them…….
