ANTS

We had an infestation of them at our library yesterday and called exterminators. This led us into ant research.

Do you know how an ant knows when another ant is dead? If not, read this:

Just finished getting rid of all the oleic acid in the house. Didn't want to spill some on me and be carried out back!

Interesting Did you know that the dreaded wasp or yellow jacket, as we call them around here, emits a smell when you kill them that signals all its buddies to come & help out. So if you kill one get its carcase away from you & the kids quickly. Of course they're attracted to the smell of meat (thus disturbing many a Bar-b-cue) but did you ever notice that bacon cooking is their favourite. Picky, picky

Speaking of ants, I've never forgotten that I was once told how to remember the difference between stalactites and stalagmites.

Just think of ants crawling up your ankles into your pants. Ants in the pants.

When the mites go up, the tights go down.

stalactites = hold on tight
stalagmites = push up with all their might
