    I put a new toilet in my utility room and cos its slimmer there is a hole in the tile with a rawplug in it where the old cistern hung. Hundreds of ants coming out the wall now, some with wings. They are crawling all over Patches bed, hes a bit perturbed. Trouble is  if I block the hole up they may come out the other side of the wall in the kitchen! Sorry Patch, live with it! :roach: You could be in Tenerife! animal

    I used to love flying ant day when I was a kid. We had a neighbour who had really nice fruit on trees, it was ripe about then. She would batten down the hatches, so we went scrumping.

    Vinegar or cinnamon will deter them apparently.

    Very good TD. Some have fallen in the loo, I pissed on them to end their misery. How come some get wings and then only for a day or so?
