Tiny ants

We believe the house lizards (see below) eat these tiny ants. If so, they're going to become very fat lizards, because there seems to be an endless supply of ants.


Drop a little drip of condensed milk on the kitchen counter during the coffee-making routine, and ants will appear out of nowhere. Drop some tuna salad and they'll really have a party. Sometimes we come out of our little home office to find an episode of Wild Kingdom in the living room -- a tribe of ants carrying a dead moth or something across the floor.

Do you get the big ants too? We seem to have a few big ants, but never in groups. I only ever see one or two at a time...

The mosquitoes have also been out in force over the last week...

Every now and then there's an invasion of big ants, and we intensify the spraying campaign till they go away. The big ants are gross. I don't mind the little ones much.

As for the mosquitoes, they seem to be constant. Maybe we need some of those killer tennis rackets ...
