    I have just been out in the garden ant-killing again. It seems every few weeks I go out there and puff some ant-killer powder over them. They die before your eyes, and then you move on to the next nest. But they always come back, and now they come back in larger numbers than ever! They are destroying the garden. And check out this news report from last year- http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/world/asi...ic/2807289.stm - they're taking over!

    You're not even trying are you :rolleyes:
    We had an ants nest problem here a few years back, we dug up the hive, put it on a platter of metal and cooked it on a hotplate for an hour or two, needless to say we have never had an ant problem since *evil cackle*! (No, we didn't eat them :| )

    We have two big wasp nests as well. That reminds me- we need to call the exterminator.
