Ants!

So, it turns out, we have ants. The below video (see jump break) was made from pictures taken (automatically) every 30 seconds for about 11.5 hours. What you see is the corner of the window in our bedroom, where luckily we still have the winterization plastic applied to the window. The little chunks of stuff are ant killer food that is designed so that they take it back to their little home to eat/share it, then they start DYING. At the beginning, there are only a few dead 'uns. Wait till the 0:30 mark for the first wave of "food poisoning" to hit. About eight seconds after that, they really start going crazy...

Oh, wow...I be Nicole just loves watching this documentary about as much as you do. Just in a different way, right? You find it interesting because of the process and seeing your strategy work! Nicole loves it simply because they're DYING! Way to go on getting those little beasts. Any, yeah, it was good that the window covering was still in place! Mom :)
