Seems like a kind of dumb question, but being that it's almost spring and we are having abnormally warm weather, our yearly springtime ant infestation is happening early. In the past i would put out Terro traps and spray the corners with bug repellant, but this year i only put 2 traps out, both out of the dogs reach and sprayed all the cracks and corners making sure it's DRY before letting Bella back through the house.
Something crossed my mind though, the ants eat the poision in the Terro traps, but continue to live for a short while, if an infected ant gets into Bella food or water bowl un-noticed, dies, and she ends up comsuming the ant with her normal meal, will it make her sick?
Another seemingly dumb question, Bella seems to think the cat boxes are full of "cookies" and constantly eats the cat feces if I don't get it scooped out before she gets at it, or if she hears one of the cats in the box she races to remove it immediately. Can this cause harm? I scoop every day, sometimes twice a day, but i honestly don't have the time to patiently wait at the box for one of the cats to poo, who really does?
... Unforuntately there is no other location option for the boxes, and they door can not be kept closed.
Ok, I'm finished with my overthought concerns and questions
