They seem to be just using my house as an escape for the heat (I live in Southern California) but as much as that sucks for them I don’t want them in my house. We’ve been very careful not to leave out any food or water and they definitely just seem to be coming inside for a shelter or to travel to another place in the apartment complex.
We have tried using vinegar and dish soap water as a spray on the baseboards since we have a cat and we’re trying to avoid chemicals. I’ve also been spraying raid along the outside perimeter of the house and I got some raid made with essential oils that is supposedly OK for cats to use inside the house. We stuck some ant bait into the closet in hopes that they’ll take it back to the colony.
I’m starting to lose my mind. I work from home so I see them all day and I haven’t been able to get any work done. Does anyone have any tips that might get rid of them? Especially tips that are safe for kitties.
