Every spring-here they come! I end up catching them and taking them outside; the little stinkers are SO smart-I have never been able to figure out where they come from!
I've learned to do many of the things (over the years) mentioned in the PETA article; it does help.

I have also learned that although they are tiny, ants ARE smart; they get scared, they feel pain...all they want to do is survive and protect their family...

Humans need to think beyond 'their' world...

Orange spray works well; I put it on cotton balls and leave them around windows, etc.

Thank you for posting this, there is no need to kill unwanted guests, they have just as much rights to live on this earth as we do, these are simple instructions to follow and things like the smell of oranges in your home during the summer is pleasant and far from inconvenient.

We have never really had a problem with ants in our present home, which is surprising because they love our garden! But these are great tips.

Noted with thanks.
