    Lol lol.

    So far, ants are stupid and are being killed by bugspray, chemical weapons and boiling water.

    Their teamwork is to no avail.

    I found humor in the comments of those who posted before me. Especially the boiling water. I guess you didn't.

    Yesterday I used boiling water on an ants nest here where I’m staying in Greece; I found nothing humorous in it doing it.

    They’re not doing any harm so I’ll leave them be knowing that they will soon depart on what I call Flying Ant Day
    We call that day by the same name. It is a day to stay indoors!

    Yet they, somehow, manage to reappear every year. Would it have to do with numbers or is it also the affect of teamwork? πŸ€”
    Or lack of teamwork on our part, we need to coordinate our boiling and poisoning efforts. We need to hit them all at the same time and definitely before they grow wings and fly to my house.
    Serious question: do them wings fall off when they’ve got to where their going? πŸ€”

    It would be great if the biggest problem in the world were ants. This is simply not the case.

    I think some fall off on the way to their destination. Faulty testing at Boeing, I've heard. πŸ€” 😲

    Yes, as soon as they land in your house. πŸ™‚

    So males are put here for one thing and one thing alone? πŸ€” 😠

    I just hit those ants with chemical weapons. They were in pain. 😊
    I have a couple of anteaters I deploy to keep the ant population in check.

    Then, she bites off his head. The praying mantis, black widow spider, and jumping spider are among a number of species that devour their mates. Sexual cannibalism is also found in other invertebrates, including a relative of the praying mantis, the Chinese mantis, and scorpions.
