Some of you already know the problem we had last night with the swarming ants.
We always have a problem with them as we live in the country surrounded by fruit trees, but last night there were thousands of them.
This is a photo I took just after I stepped on this one, it was half an inch long. :-0

I really hate these ants!!!!!

All life experience is by contrast............think how happy you will be when they are gone!!!!!! I thought you were kidding about the wings on ant's...thinking maybe they were giant termites. Well, maybe they are. Hope not!

very interesting...I too have been dealing with these winged devils...from what I understand it's their mating season....but the ones I am dealing with are fire ants with wings and they are so wicked

No they are not termites Larry, they are carpenter ants.
It's their mating time and when the conditions are right they swarm. It's made much worse by the fact we are surrounded by fruit trees here, and because itís so hot we have all the windows and doors open most of the time, because of that we are bound to get them.

If I didn't have a cat I would use borax powder to get rid of them, but because itís a poison I don't have that option.......so out with the Raid spray and the vacuum cleaner. :-0
