Battery packs keeps melting? Answered

Right now i'm trying to build a circuit that goes from a two AA pack to a switch to a potentiometer to a motor but every time I try to add a resistor of any size it always stops working. When I don't add the resistor the battery pack just melts and I have to buy a new one. Does anyone know how I can stop this from happening?

Keeping Argentine ants out of a home?

Does anyone have firsthand experience at keeping Argentine ants out of a home? I've read several websites that all seem to give a laundry list of household substances one can use to keep them at bay, but nothing saying "I've tried this for Argentine ants, and it works". I've tried ant traps, which work for a little while, and I've tried pepper, which didn't really work at all. Ideally, I'd like to put something around doors and windows to keep them out, but if there are other methods, I'm open to those too. Any help is appreciated!

Is there any specific adhesive or something that I need to use to keep it on, or is double sided tape the way to go?
