    Ant in the Shower with Me

    Ewww, I am petrified of ants, terrified, don't ask I have no clue why. LOL Strange phobia. Well I was having my shower and I saw an ant at the top of the shower, I screamed and jumped out with shampoo in my hair, LOL. I had to kill it and investigate the shower before I went back in, LOL. Now Im going to be sacred to shower.

    How strange... today I looked over at Tiki's area, and I saw he was pecking at something on the ground... I walked up to him and he was MUTILATING an ant... the thing was dead by the time I got Tiki away, but its head was torn off. It was weird.

    Re: Ant in the Shower with Me

    Ok I have a good ant story.....when I was little, I think about 3 or 4, I sat on an old log and a million ants started crawling all over me (well it felt like a million) my mom scooped me up and put me in a bath to get them all off...well I tell you I had nightmares for some time but now I'm ok with them.

    Moths are my phobia now....the really big ones.....I get shivers thinking about them.

    Ants drive me insane. We have the odd ant here and there this year and can't for the life of us figure out where they are getting in. Stupid ants.

    I am certainly not scared of ants because ours here are only about a centimeter long, but they are annoying. If we leave any food out n the counter, we will have hundreds of ants in about a day.

    You know what's worse? Showering at 5am and noticing a roach right next to your head! *shudders*

    You would freak if you were at my parents house. Ants invaded my bathroom every summer for water. I would move the shower head and they would scatter everywhere. My dad eventually found where they were getting in and caulked it shut, but it was annoying.

    In my last apartment ants came in through the sliding glass door and invaded my paper towels...? They did it for months. We sprayed poison outside and bought every brand of paper towels, but they still invaded the cardboard part. I don't understand why!

    I hate ants. No, I loathe them. We get the tiny sugar ants every year. If you leave so much as a speck of food on the counter, they're swarming in the kitchen within an hour. One of the reasons I love winter is that we don't have to deal with those freaking ants. I also frequently wake up with one crawling on me. That's cause I'm so sweet.

    Ants don't bother me at all, but... When Breadpazoid and I were up in Sequoia National Park last weekend, there were these HUGE thick black ants (picture about two Number 2 pencil erasers stacked on top of each for a length perception) crawling all over in the bathroom and on the toilets. I quickly did my business, washed my hands and ran out of there and Bread is looking at me with a clueless WTF look from the car. The pinchers on those ants were scary enough. LOL

    Don't move to Hawaii then!! Aunts are everywhere. They can go away with sprays, etc... BUT- no matter how clean your house is, cockroaches will come in. They are everywhere here. I have never had a cockroach in my house till I moved to Hawaii. They are even in my car.. and it is a NEW car! I do not eat in my car, no food whatsoever. So there is no reason for them to be in there. I guess they like the air conditioner. lol
