ant parade

One morning, in our rented Florida "Italian villa", I saw a few tiny ants in the bathroom with an obvious sweet tooth. We bought an ant trap and set it on the counter that night. In the morning this is what I saw . . .



A little parade of ants marching to the trap and back to a tiny hole in the tile.
I felt like I was watching a documentary on the discovery channel.

By the next day, not an ant in sight.



And . . . no, I don't feel any guilt. Sorry.

That is amazing!
I have never seen ants marching like that. Reminds me of the song, "The Ants go marching one by one, horrah, horrah."

When do we get to see this Villa?

Instead of feeling guilty, I felt like cheering for you. I have experiencing that often in our home, and when I finally get to the point that there are not any in sight, I feel like throwing a party.

Hope you are enjoying your Florida stay.

I wouldn't feel any guilt either! Thanks for the product endorsement. The next time we have a sweet ant invasion, I'll look for that.

I hope you allow pinning from your site because I want to pin it so I don't forget.
