The wild night started before we went to bed, when we realized there were ants coming and going into a little tiny hole up on the ceiling above our bed. We have a high pitched ceiling, and at the top joint somehow these "carpenter ants" (they don't eat wood, however) had found a home up inside there. So hubby had a great idea that we put some caulking and or spackling compound over the hole. However since it was so high and we didn't want to move the bed, get a ladder, etc., we just tried to daub it on there from the end of a long pole. It wasn't a very well done job, but we thought it would at least keep the ants from marching two by two over our heads all night, and then we could fix it better the next day. Well, in the middle of the night my hubby was awakened by falling bits and pieces of the spackling compound...and as we shone the light up on the ceiling, the ants were running all over the place trying to dismantle our work as fast as they could. So we ended up sleeping on the couch and recliner in the living room for the rest of the night. You can imagine how wonderful that was!
This picture now shows a repaired ceiling, thanks to our son coming to our rescue with a tall ladder and the proper tools to caulk the hole correctly. And thankfully we have not seen another ant since! (And we had a good night's sleep last night!)
Now, I don't think it's too late to go over to Deb's place and check out what our friends have posted for yesterday's Friday Foto Friends!
