There are ants!

im sitting at my desk and felt something crawling on my arm. it was a little i started looking around and found a whole marching line under the window.

Ever notice that no matter how much space there is to walk ants always walk in a straight line? I hate almost every bug..but i dont mind ants i think they are kinda cute their own little way.

NOT FIRE ANTS!! they come straight from hell. That was the thing i hated the most about living down south. We THANK GOD dont have that problem up here in NJ

  • I Despise ants and just my luck where we are living was once and orchard so the little buggers are everywhere. Now they are just the little black ants that like fruit and sugar, but I've had enough bad experiences with fire ants etc as a child that I don't even like the innocent ants. Outside, fine I don't care, In my house you're a dead bug!

  • Funny, I'm not put off by ant either. If they are just working kind that is, I'll leave bread at a mound in hope they don't invade my home.

  • Ants make me CrAzY ! I see ants marching in a line anywhere and I'm ready to KILL! It gets dry here (like now, drought) and the ants come in for any moisture, hang around faucets, sinks etc. Drives me nuts. and Yes, we DO have fire ants from hell down here...they have been reported as far north as Delaware and west California. I get stung every summer and then I KILL them and their queen and have no problem until the next spring in my yard.
