The visitors.

After about one year of taking possession of my home I received my first unwanted visitors. The thousands of the small brown ants that are so common here. I used to watch in fascination as column after column marched their way around my home, utilizing the grout lines between the tiles to make their journey less of an effort and making homes inside the electric sockets and switches. They reigned supreme for three years. Then I would hit them with a gush of fly spray and kill them. They are still here to this day. The following year the big fat brown ones introduced themselves into my home, these more than capable of carting of a sizable lump of chicken stolen from the cats dish. A tray filled with water around the food stopped this and again fly spray did a good finishing off job of the escapees. Last year I was introduced to the big jet black ones, now these can spray the juice at you, not even the cats will attempt to take them on, but again fly spray does the job. This years new visitor has given me quite a surprise, the common wood louse. Over the last several weeks more and more of the little critters have been getting into the house, the cats find enjoyment in playing with them, but fly spray don't work. I wonder what next year will bring?

Dunno about there but a good dousing with Sevin dust keeps them at bay here :) OR you just watch them on nights the telly isn' working. Definitely industrious little bu**ers

If the telly's not working, that means there's a power cut, so that means you can't see 'em LLL :urm:
