Unfortunately, I believe that title will always be bestowed upon Don - a true stalwart of the Killer Ant thread right from the beginning.

And of course, second in line is Wolfie who I know secretly loves this thread Big Grin PMSL.

I think ants with relish sounds great! Maybe a new ballpark treat?

I think it might be featured at the new Philadelphia stadium. Big Grin

Apparently, the Terminex advertising executive is a huge Motown fan, considering the new slogan:

Ok folk, gather up your ants! My wife watches american idol, therefore, I watch american idol.

I want all of us to gather up as many ants as possible and send it to the red head kid-john Stevens. Maybe they will put us out of ever hearing from him again!

The Killer Ant Thread is back in business my friends.

The last couple of weeks I have noticed large black ants near the house and a couple had found their way inside. Today I took half a day off from work and found lots of them in the kitchen. I killed maybe 20 or so.
This evening I got home from a meeting and my daughter said there were more ants in the kitchen.

There were hundreds of them.
I opened up a cabinet and they fell out. I began slaying them and spraying them. I have a glue trap in one cabinet with 30 ants stuck to it. The space near our back door, which now shall simply be known as the "killing field" has at least 40 large black corpses arrayed in various poses of agony.

Everything is out of the cabinet, some stuff we threw out. The odd ant still tries to make a break for it. I must have killed over a hundred, by crushing, spray, glue trap, and drowning. My wife has already forbidden me to use fire. Darn.

Let the ant tales of horror begin...

This is just plain weird, as on the way to work this morning I came across something (see below) and thought "I must post this in the Killer Ant thread when I get to work"...

Firstly, thanks to Don for his story of Ant Slayage. Always nice to see the killer bugs getting their just desserts...

Anyway, on to my story...

I was merrily walking along smoking a cigarette when I looked down on the ground and saw the BIGGEST beetle I have ever seen. This sucker was about 2" long and not being used to seeing so big a beast in England, I was taken aback. It had somehow managed to get onto its back and it was just lying in the pavement wiggling its grotesquely oversize legs in the air. Now, I had two options here:

1. Stamp on that sucker and put it out of its misery (and also stop it from going on to terrorise smaller bugs, which it undoubtedly would do as it looked like a bit of a bully)

or

2. Roll it over onto its front and let it go on its merry little way (just as I was doing going to work).

Well, I chose the second option (mainly due to not wanting giant beetle guts on the bottom of my shoe), so gently using the tip of my shoe I rolled Bug Beast over and off it scuttled under the fence of the nearby rugby ground.

As it scuttled away no doubt to get up to no good, I realised I should have captured this beast on film using the camera on my mobile phone. If only I had thought quicker...

So that's my "Killer Bug" story. I would have started another thread, but I sure Harris would have banned me from the board (with Wolfie pushing strongly for my dismissal too).

On the ant side, we do have lots of those little suckers crawling around outside. I always give them a loving glance while having a cigarette at work, thinking about this thread. So far they have yet to invade my new flat. I pity the ant who tries. For I, like Don, will take great pleasure in extinguishing their little killer lives...

This morning I stepped out my front door and there were hundreds of ants swarming my recycle bin. They were climbing up the wall and were everywhere.
I ran to the the ant and spider spray and with my trusty sidekid(my son) at my side. We took turns spraying the ants!
Die, ants, Die!

Ok, this is not about ants but we have another problem...a chipmunk!!!
We think it is just one but maybe there are many and we just think it is the same one. He keeps running back and forth on our deck. If we are sitting on the deck then he decides to run back and forth under the deck. A friend of mine told me a way he caught a chipmunk so we set the trap last night. You put a bucket of water with peanuts floating on top. Then you take a board and make a ramp up to the top of the bucket with a few peanuts leading a trail to the top. The chipmunk is suppose to jump in the bucket and drown. I will let you know if we catch him.
