Everything was fine until we hit the elk...
What a fabulous montage of pests and predators! Beautiful!I was wishing you were here today. The exterminator arrived and diagnosed the little fellers as: Citronella Ants! Harmless!!!!He lifted them up and spelled them--then let me smell, and it was exactly like a candle. So, of course, I said, "Are you sure that isn't a scented box they're in?" (Not a question he hears every day, I'm sure!)You'd have laughed for ten minutes. Anyway, thanks for advising me to hold on to the specimens, because it saved time, aggravation, and money.
"lifted them up and smelled them" -- not spelled them!
I hope he did not charge you. I have never heard of that kind of ant! I am so glad they are harmless, even if there were quite a few of them.And where else but in that blessed cottage would we find scented ants!! LOL!!
