Ants: The Musical

“And in the naked light I saw
Ten thousand people, maybe more
People talking without speaking
People hearing without listening.”

Substitute “people” with “black ants” and you have my story. Not nearly as poetic as this Simon and Garfunkle hit, but it’s actually the sound of silence that’s so captivating with these little critters. They appear when I least expect them. They’re not intrusive per se, it’s not like they’re out to wreck my plans. Actually they run away when I disturb their plans. With a recommendation, I brought home some Terro ant bait cartridges and within a day or so, the ants came out in droves. They were on these like a bee on honey.

So that picture isn’t great, but I put two baits near a window and they loooooved it. Now I’m waiting to see if they’ll die off. Fingers crossed!
