    Woke up and found my bedroom covered with fire ants

    Never eat in your bedroom. You know why?

    There are fire ants crawling everywhere. In my bed, on the floor, in my clothes, etc.


    However, in staying optomistic, I figured this is a great chance to capture as many as I can as food for my plants.

    True. Not to mention that they'll be gone in a few days because there's only so many crumbs that they're after. Eventually, the crumbs will run out, and they'll leave.

    Fire ants are carnivorous and as far as I know captures prey to eat. I don't know if they will eat crumbs.

    I have some living in my bog. They get the other pests away, and sometimes become plant food.

    I never get ants - but I'm not complaining. I have lots of weird bugs that do make it in though - it keeps the cats busy hunting moths and other "things" in the bathroom at night.

    lol right now I am battling ants...which is hard for me because I have lots of animals so i cant spray poison.....however I have a method for getting rid of them....first clean the room.....get everything off the floor that doesnt belong there....really clean the room....if you dont have animals or arent worried about them use raid and spray the surfaces that you can where you see ants....once your room is clean it is easier because you can see where they are and what they are after.....first spray what they are after then spray the line going to it...then heavily spray the places where they are coming into the room....if the majority of them are on the floor vacuum. if you have animals and are worried bout them use windex.....it kills them also.....and it doesnt harm any surfaces........if they are far enough from animals/plants but you dont want to use raid....if you can, use spray bleach.....not only will it kill the bugs but it destroys the scent trial so it confuses the other ants..............

    to prevent them from coming back make sure you clean up after yourself all the time....and keep the room clean......
