in our house, we are starting to see the first few signs of a future ant problem.

as i type this, i’m watching a good-sized ant hike across the area rug. he’s caring with him (her?) the carcass of a slightly smaller ant. and it’s not easy going.






it’s actually making me really sad.


“Ants keep a fairly clean house. They carry their waste matter outside of their nest and dispose of it in a pile called a midden. As well as being a kind of dumpster, the midden also functions as a cemetery. Ants transport their dead there in order to protect themselves and their queen from contamination.”

One response to “ants!!!
