Re: ants

Have I got an ant story for you!

I have this lovely hibiscus I bought for $1. I have had it for 5 years. I give it a good spray, a little insecticidal soap, and bring it in the house to overwinter.

Last week, I watered it, and it was fine.

Friday, I saw ants coming in from outside, along the concrete slaw, and climbing a wall inside my house. I put out some bait and waited.

Today, when I went to water the plants, I noticed the line of ants was smaller. I poured a pitcher of water into my hibiscus, and the ants swarmed! Millions of them. I swear they made a noise! They were carrying eggs.

I grabbed a plastic bag and carried my hibiscus outside, away from the house.

It's going to die. I hope the ants go with it!
