Sorry for the cleaning crew not checking under the table runner. I will adjust cleaning service accordingly.
thanks for letting us know of the issue!! Next time, you can feel free to contact during your stay, as I would have made the cleaning crew come back to fix their mistake!
The home is in a woodland with both north side yard and back woodland ravine that are nature santuraries that we don’t touch to allow us to coexist with natural habitat in eco-friendly manner.
For the house area, we already had pest control out for exterior and soffits but will call them back out again after learning this about the ants that we thought we had dealt with — Just before your stay and now after checking out, we spray the interior with “Pet/child friendly” spray on floors and wall/floor borders and crevices, in order to rid ourselves of any small ants.
For those reading the review, I also leave bug spray (for those who want to sit outside beyond the screened in porch area), Pet/child friendly bug spray for guest, & citronella and peppermint essential oils in the small red bucket on the “house rules table” next to back door.
Glad this was the only issue and I’m finding out early on in the season so we can take care of it early. There is a lot that goes into Cleaning Open air porch & other “opening ceremony” type duties for the summer beach fun that is just starting !
