would assume the ants cannot cross the chalk due to the fact the chalk absorbs the scent trail ??????

Good thinking, makes sense.

I drew a chalk circle around myself. I don't know about the ants but it certainly has kept my demons away from me.

Huge spiders atm due to the Autumnal weather

I've had some humdingers in the house of late, ones that even I am a little afraid to deal with.  It seems everyone is talking about these mammoth spiders at the moment.

Spiders no problem.
Ants?  Use Terro Ant Killer.  Basically sugar water with borax solution.  They can't abide by it.  I have heard that Chinese ant chalk works effectively.  Ants succumb like cowboys and indians in a western, falling off their horses.

The ants you're thinking of come from Springfield.
