I (DeAnna) remember the many cumulative hours of watching Dora the Explorer when the boys were young. I also remember a specific episode with a song about the marching, marching, marching, marching ants. It was sung like ants going into battle.
We have been amazed at the ants here since the day we arrived. We were forewarned not to leave any dirty dishes on the counter and to wipe away any crumbs. It’s amazing how fast they appear from out of nowhere. Really, where do they hide? How do they know?
Jonah was finished with his breakfast and placed the container on the counter next to the sink. I finished my breakfast and headed to the kitchen, less than 30 minutes later. I saw his container swarming with ants. I immediately thought to myself the Dora marching ants song and wondered if these ants were singing it in French, English or Ewondo as they marched to cover this container.
Just in case you are wondering, we do use ant killer to try and get rid of the ants – that’s the photo with the bottle caps. We place the poison in the bottle caps.
