Got a face full of em on the cycle ride home this evening (NW Kent). Lots of soldier (?, the non-flying ones) ants on the march in my garden, while the flyers are taxiing along the runway, checking that the seats are upright, bags aren't blocking the exits and that the doors are set to manual.

Must be that time of year when the weather gets hot and muggy. Hate flying ants. GRRRRRRR.

Not yet - they're late, around here I reckon to have started 'dealing with' them by July 12th.

No flying ants yet but have been battling walky ants in the kitchen for the last week. We've been in our house for 25 years and this is the first time.

I've thrown ant powder around behind the kitchen unit plinths, emptied and cleaned the larder cupboard and cleaned all hard surfaces with a range of lemony or vinegary things. There seem to be fewer of them now, in a couple of localised spots, but still not exterminated.

Thinking of escalating to a flame-thrower next. Bastards.

Got something to say?
