Now for the termites

Given a choice between swarming ants and swarming termites, I'd always go for the ants. Sure, they might bite or sting or bite and sting, but they don't drop their wings willy nilly. In your tea, for example. Termites are no respecters of hot beverages.

Once again, the cane toads gathered under the window and mopped up most of the swarm. The spiders took care of the rest.

A few survivors made it into the house. After shedding their wings, they were booted out to meet their termitey destiny.



A spider with wings? Only in Australia!
