I blamed the BT engineer who made a huge hole in the frame for the wire...........once the window was open they were gone. Just found it amazing that so many played follow the leader through that hole
On another ant note - one of the cats decided he was having his tea outside and I dropped a piece of chicken. I have been watching them carrying off tiny tiny pieces - like the Borrowers and at the moment, there is a black line of them shoulder to shoulder munching away all around the edge.
Many years ago I had a teenage son - he didn't like me tidying his bedroom, always saying that he'd do it himself One day I came home and noticed what looked like an electric wire or cable running up the front of the house (white house) and into his bedroom window 'What piece of electric equipment has he got up there now?' I wondered (he later became a sound engineer) and I went up to his room to have a look ......... the 'black cable' was a thick column of ants starting in the front garden, going up the front of the house, through a crack in a beam beneath the window (very old house) and finishing in a row of half empty Coke cans lined up along one of the beams which formed a narrow shelf along his bedroom wall!!!!!!! Apparently he was 'collecting them'!!!!!
