Invasion of the Sugar Bowl! (OWPC)

When I arrived at my mother’s house after twenty-four hours of traveling from Canada to Australia a few years ago, all I wanted to do was enjoy the sound of magpies serenading the setting sun whilst drinking a hot cup of tea on her back patio.

Unfortunately on entering the kitchen it soon became apparent I wasn’t alone. This is what became of my poor mother’s sugar bowl whilst she was first in hospital followed by a month in rehab. She moved out whilst the ants moved in!

Ants Sugar-Fix

Lines of ants were trooping down the wall, across the skirting board then up into the cupboard to the sugar bowl. Meanwhile across the ceiling were lines of ants marching into the pantry to feast upon the goodies in there. Lovely… NOT!

What a nuisance it was then to clean it all up but what a great photo opportunity now for ANT, the first of the new One Word Photo Challenge of the A-Z Animal List hosted by Jennifer Nichole Wells. Click on the link below for more details.

    • Couldn’t agree more! Our house in Australia was always taken over when there were heavy rains (which seemed to be as soon as I’d cleared the house of ants…). If they’d simply taken up residence down in the garage I would have worked around them but to go immediately to the pantry – now THAT was crossing the line. Grrr… 😩
