    Meg's came yesterday. Predictably, she says in her blog, as in 2000, they arrived in London on 21 July, 23 July in 2001, 26 July in 2002, and 27 July in 2003. Flying ants.


    That's London. Ours arrived today. I wondered why the local children were attacking my gatepost with sticks; some midsummer ritual perhaps. Well no - and yes. Trying to kill off a swarm is futile, they soon discovered, as the swarm turned its attention to them and they ran off down the road homewards shrieking.

    Sticky things, them. Flying ants... well, yes, kids, too.
