An exterminator told my friend that when you begin to see ants, they are the scouts. Stop these and you won't have ants. My son discovered that if you spray them with Windex (or any other glass cleaner), they are exterminated. Keep after it for a while and you won't have ants. We have used this for years. 2 days ago our humming bird feeder leaked onto the concrete front porch...the liquid got down in the crack between brick and concrete so there was not way to flush it out. Ants
appeared quickly, I sprayed them with Windex. Watched through the day and kept spraying them. Now ant free! Safe for kids, pets and environment! It is worth a try before you spend hundreds.

I had heard of vinegar but never Windex. Won't hurt to try it. Thanks for sharing.
I use mirrors in the garden to add interest and give the impression that I have double the plants! For large mirrors, I use old mirrored shower doors. They're water resistant and hold up
year round. For bird safety, the mirrors are placed parallel to bird flight paths in my narrow side garden. In open areas, I cover the larger mirrors with lattice. There's more details on my blog. http://www.empressofdirt.net/using-mirrors-i...
After moving to a new home, we couldn't figure out quite what to do about the free floating TV on the wall... it needed something to anchor it down visually, but an expensive
entertainment set wasn't going to happen anytime soon. SO.. off to the garage sales. This well built dresser was $20! It had 3 animal print drawers that went away. Hubby made some inserts to act as shelves for the middle and drilled some holes behind the side drawers for cords. Distressing with some sandpaper, spray painting the middle black, adding some new drawer handles.(more on the photo) A light coat of polyurethane all over and into the living room!
