During this summer we suddenly had an invasion of ants. A lot of them.

Our guess was that the summer heat outside was so devastatingly hot that the ants came in to look for food. (And succeeding in some areas too!) I've been told these little critters were sugar ants. The ants were so abundant, coming in hordes to feed off on the scattered crumbs of the kitchen floor. It was pretty nasty.

Usually my parents just squish them. Usually I ignore them, or if the opportunity arose, I'd vacuum them up. My sister did both. However, one day she was bitten. Her hatred of them grew a bit more. Many ants lost their lives as my sister and I crazily drowned them in buckets of water. I have to say, it was kind of entertaining, in a gross and morbid way.

But she kept getting bitten and as a result, she developed myrmecophobia. Oh how I laugh at her.

Fortunately, we have no more ants (thanks to my parents and their spraying of the house's exterior walls and destruction of ant piles) but every time my sister sees an ant she cringes. Like the giant one crawling around in our kitchen.

The sugar ants may be gone, but the mini-Goliaths are here to wreak havoc.
