Ants in November?
Surprisingly, there weren't so many ants in the house this summer...far less than usual. It seems that they were just hiding and waiting, and when the sun came out today..so did the ants.
Yesterday I made a chocolate cake and put it in an airtight cake box on a side table in the kitchen. Next to it was an airtight tin full of biscuits. I opened the cake box half an hour ago and there were these tiny ants crawling all over the cake. I checked the biscuit tin and found the same.
I suppose I could have brushed them off and kept the cake and biscuits, but I just didn't fancy them, so they went in the bin. What a waste.
So I have been all over the kitchen with the ant spray and hope that they have disappeared. I never thought I'd say it, but roll on colder weather so we can say goodbye and good riddance to creepy crawlies for a few months.
