When last we spoke, I was rubbing cucumber peels on the counter while giggling like a madwonman. Well, ok. Maybe it wasn't quite that bad, but I was a little overly fixated on the discovery of cucumber as a barrier to ants. That fixation quickly ended the next morning when I woke up and checked on my doorway ant entrance point. Those are peppermint leaves on either side. Evidently, ants hate them, too. I have my doubts.... Yep. I totally found an ant on top of one of the dried out peels. I was not impressed. At this point, though, I should probably point out that cucumber peels do seem to work when they're fresh. So for quick fixes, cucumber is indeed a valid option. Not so good, however, for an overnight barrier. I was getting desperate. That afternoon, I was heading off to visit my parents and grandparents. I had to do something, and I had to do it fast. They live four hours away, so it's not like I could drive back and check up on eve
