Hi Frank - nice to read you on this site after the collapse of the BBC messageboard. I wondered if I would find some of the regulars from there now over here.
Re ants I suppose I always remember being bitten when treading on an ants nest and then having them crawl up my trouser legs and got into wellies so I am a bit nervous of them. The idea of fresh mint leaves sounds good and, no, I wouldn't try the petrol thing. I can imagine up goes the fence next door as well as my bins and the rotting goodies withinm Mind you with all this rain perhaps it would refuse to light anyway!
