lol...i agree to the no thanks of ants. Let them march right back out and never re-enter again. I heard walnut shells are good at keeping spiders away but not sure about ants though.

the red and black ants taste like candy. . . just gotta make sure you bite them before they bite you.

I was told once that locusts taste a bit like prawns, so the candy ant bit sounds a bit fishy to me. :laughing:

I remember when I was a kid that my little sister told me that she had just made a picnic consisting of ladybird (ladybug) sandwiches and daddy-long-legs on cocktail sticks. But then again, my sister was a bit mad - she was always claiming to find little mouse-shoes on the stairs, and she once built a woodlouse (pillbug) farm. She also used to do an impression of a butterfly being sick, which meant that you had to come close to her face and listen while she made the tiniest little sound imaginable.

Oh yes, and she thought that wasps made the best honey and that if you poured sugar on a slug instead of salt, the slime that was made as the animal dissolved could be used to make 'slug honey'.

Yes but she was only around seven-years old at the time. If she mentioned daddy-long-legs on cocktail sticks now, I'd really think she was mad. Perhaps I should ask her - she what she says.

By the way, I don't think daddy-long-legs are the same in Britain as they are in the U.S.

I do not mind the daddy long legs that we have in the U.S.It is the huge black or brown ones with the huge bodies that look like they could arm wrestle with you that upset me.

Because you should have called her mommy-long-legs or sister-long-legs. She is female after all. :laughing:

Let me rephrase that :45:  The ants are running towards the cotton balls with the ant repellent on it.

Would you like to assign me a 20 page term paper on this professor?

If they're running towards it,maybe it should be called an ant attractant and not an ant repellant! :hmmm:

That makes total sense.Let me put up a huge sign "Get your honey soaked cotton balls here" not responsible for the after effects.

I had a "fear" of the Raspberry ants a few years ago when they go famous. I went & bought some diatomaceous earth, which is supposed to repel or kill the little beasts. The idea was to put some around the perimeter of the house.
