Every Spring the Sugar Ants Win the War.

So every year around this time I go to war.  My opponent is small but mighty with a large army.  They are fearless and relentless … I am talking about the Sugar Ant.   Evey year they pop up as soon as the weather gets a bit warmer and we have a bit of rain.

I have tried sprays, traps … I have hired professional companies … the Sugar Ants just laugh and go about their business.  I don’t even have anything sugary in the area they like to hang out (my kitchen sink).   This year I was actually considering a new tactic … maybe I should build them a habitat.  Find out what Sugar Ants like (I’m assuming sugar … but what else)  Maybe build them a little garden near my sink for them to hang out in.  Maybe we can live together in peace.   I really would be doing this more for me than them because I just know like every other year I am going to lose this war.  The weird thing is … just when I get to the point where I am losing my marbles over these ants … they seem to move on.  It’s like they get bored of me … After a while they laugh in my face (a bit like the French knights in Monty Python’s Holy Grail).

So I will fight on …knowing my chances of winning are slim … so to quote the great Ant philosopher Dave Matthews …

When all the little ants are marching
Red and black antennas waving
They all do it the same
They all do it the same way
