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 …
Red and black antennas waving
They all do it the same
They all do it the same way
