We live up on the fourth floor. Every time we experience either extremely hot temperatures or very heavy rains, we get a surge of these ants. I didn’t think to snap my own photograph, so I borrowed this Flickr one.
Invasion is the right word, too, because this is our space and every where outside is their space. I had to pull the food from the pantry and buy those heavy zip-lock freezer bags in order to protect out food investments. Today I finally got my kitchen back … just in time for the horrendous return of the 100º + heat index. The cool weather cannot get here too quickly as far as I am concerned.
