What are you looking at in this picture???
It is a ton of ants inside a mailbox! Imagine going to get your mail, a normal daily occurrence. This time you feel something all over your hands and when you look at your hand and mail you have a HEEBIE JEEBIE reaction with associated scream then you drop your mail. A few more convulsing twitches because you feel like they are still on you and then the whole incident is over……almost. You swat the remaining ants off the mail, grab your cell phone, and call your husband to complain about the ants.
“You are a friggin entomologist….why the heck are their ants all over our mailbox???!!!” By now you have figured out that I am the person she is talking to, this is my mailbox, and the woman is my wife Jackie. See, I get to take my work home with me! I spot baited the mailbox with some ant gel when I got home and they were gone the next day. I’m sure this is not the end of it…….
