I have had ants in my pantry over the last week. I think they are planning their tactics. I see them gather for meetings, not bothering at all about food, but grouped closely, conferring. Then they are gone without trace, only to return and attack a honey jar.

Gone again! Another conference in a different venue, then a guerrilla strike on the fig jam. Hunter gatherers or opportunistic thieves, depending on your viewpoint.


  1. Hmmm, interesting. I have not had ants for years and suddenly they are back in my kitchen too - same behaviours and same targets! We should stay in touch about this development. Purdy

  2. ants are a constant here at the creek - I make moats around my jams and honey.... they still somehow breech the gap...... you've got to admire their persistence....
