Halt your Wii's Appetite for Batteries!

If you have a Wii + Kids, then you're burning through batteries at an alarming rate just as I was.  I knew I had to try something different, it was just getting out of hand.  Almost all of these batteries are from Wiimote usage just since the start of summer.  Like I said, out of hand!

Ohhhh! That's why we have ants!

So, I get an message from my wonderful wife today that the ants are invading the kitchen.  Now, this was just the latest in an all weekend tale of defending the homeland from an invasion of ants.  It seems the ants didn't enjoy the torrential rains we'd been experiencing, and decided they liked it better in our kitchen.  First streaming in from this window, then that one, then the sockets... on and on.  After having saturated every point of entry I could think of with poison, inside and out, I thought we might be safe.
