A German couple who called a pest exterminator to kill ants in their new house are looking for somewhere new to live after the man used too many poison bombs and contaminated their home so badly it has been torn down.
The couple named only as Lars and Patricia K. were so annoyed by an infestation of ants in their nice, new house in Burscheid near Cologne that they called a pest exterminator to get rid of them, the regional Express newspaper wrote on Thursday.
But unluckily for them, the man they employed was an over-enthusiastic amateur who was not even registered with the local Chamber of Industry and Commerce.
"He put smoke bombs around the house and used hundreds of times the permitted dosage," a witness told the paper.
And when the couple returned home 24 hours later - with their two-year-old son - they were devastated to see what had happened.
"The wallpaper had come off, all the pictures had fallen off the walls," they told Express.
The place stank strongly of chemicals and was obviously uninhabitable. An environmental auditor was called out, and said the highly concentrated poison had gone deep into the walls and could not be removed.
The house, which had only been built two years ago, was so contaminated it was demolished on Wednesday, but the cellar has been left in place for further investigation, wrote the paper, in case the ground under the house was also contaminated.
Yo then there, ping and all that stuff.
Ich bin ein Bugthinner.
But did it get rid of the ants?
Never ask a German to exterminate anything.
‘scuse me. I have exterminated MANY mice, rats, bugs...and I am a Cherman!
Was it over when the Germans bombed Lars and Patricia?
Gotta love Wilhelm the Exterminator. He’s especially thorough when making mistakes.
When in the Asphalt business, if a Dr were to complain about a job (most assuredly there would be something ‘wrong’) I used to tell the most obnoxious ones:
“You, as a Dr, can bury your mistakes. I am forced to fix mine”.
The title alone brought me to this thread.
Obviously they have rednecks in Germany, too.
It only killed nein ants! for crying out loud with all that poison you would think it would get at least a dozen or so.
Ant problem solved with just one application Ant-B-Gone. Now in the handy 20 megaton size.
Never use that surplus IG Farben stuff!
Evil LOL ...
LOL. (actually..."guffawed" out loud is probably more precise)
Dr Pym gets himself into some trouble.
Did it get rid of the ants?
Ich bin ein Bombinner
But did it kill that ants?
I’m sure this is going to end up a Phase IV solution to the ants!!
I could have sent them to my local AGWAY where they sell a $2 bottle of this sticky liquid that you put on several small paper cut-outs around the floor. The ants then track this poison that’s stuck to them back to their nests & in several weeks they are ALL gone for good.
