Is it just me or are there a lot of flying ants about today?.
There were bloody hundreds of them by the Bedmo' gaol on my way to work this morning, and I know that there is normally a day about this time of year each year, when they all swarm out to mate and then die (or something like that). Its actually quite surreal some years, I remember when I was a kid in London, you would get clouds of them just hanging in the air in the evening and then the next day the floor would be carpetted with their bodies everywhere you went.  OMG Death Star!!!11

Could it be that day is near? (or today?)


:edit: -  Laughing I just stuck my head out the window at work to see if there were any about in town (to confirm my suspicions), and one flew straight into my forehead!  Laugh

Actually - I just popped down to the shop for a sandwich and there aren't as many of them as I would have expected (not yet anyway). Looks like a bit of a weak effort so far.

That's my point, to live on such a high then pop their clogs must be a bit depressing.

Fecking flying ants. Was on my way in to town this morning, stepped outside the door and saw 'em all across the path. Time for a little turf war.

Went back inside to get the ant powder and started letting loose on the little pests (I dont mind them in general, but right outside my door is annoying). After succesfully ridding my path of the black terror, I realised I had left my keys inside and locked myself out  Doh!

Had to mission it over the roof and in through my window.

I think i've just seen one of the greasy little coquesuckers. My prediction is Heatwave Monday, Storm Monday evening and Ants on Wednesday.

ATTENTION PEEPS!  You have to help the ants, they are the royal ant kings and queens who are flying away from the colony to make their own ones and mate to give new workers.  The problem is that they are totally sh1t at flying and often just stumble around trying to shag.  If you see one, make sure you get it out of the house and in a sunny place since they need solar heat to get enough energy to fly.  Sounds like a bit of a faff but you will be rewarded when the insect-human war is over and our new invertebrate leaders finally take their rightful place as leaders of the unvierse etc..
