I have always been fascinated by ants and as a child I could spend hours watching the ants do their stuff outside my grandparents house. As an adult I still find them fascinating, but I am happy to execute any that make their way into my house and try to steal my food.
This post is not about those naughty ants.
Recently I have had the opportunity to witness the ants near our house swarming. I have never seen this before. I'm not sure whether it's because of the difference in temperature between Victoria and New South Wales, or whether I just never stopped to look before.
Last week the Honey Ants swarmed.
Last night I went to check on our garden and discovered the little black ants were having their turn, but their take off point was my vegetable plants.
