over the years, i've come up with a theory: if you see an ant or two or three snooping around in some place that surely contains no food for them (e.x. bathroom), it is best not to kill them lest you want a larger search and rescue team to come looking for them in the next couple of days. my bathroom used to occasionally be invaded by sizable legions of ants, and this was when i used to be cruel and pick off any that were within reach. now i try to leave the "scout" ants alone and i haven't had a bad incident in a while. coincidence? am i on to something?

Ants are clever bastards. Just leave them alone and all will be good.

I used to spend hours of my time with buckets of water, hoses and water pistols killing thousands of them.

They aren't clever. They would have invented boats if they were.

some ant species in rain forests have learned to build rafts out of the bodies of their workers (they each chomp into each other's ass).

nah, if they ever became intelligent enough to do so we'd simply have to introduce them to the internet.

the best solution to killing ants it fill a pot up with water and put sugar in there and around it to attract the and and make a ramp into the sugary water and watch them fall to their deaths!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1 mwuhahahahahahhaha!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

So I'm bringing this thread back because I recently climbed a tree that had ants on it..

I was basically climbing around the ants and avoiding them when I ripped off a peace of bark that was loosely attached to the guava tree. It was pretty crazy, It looked like an
ANT CEMETERY! A bunch of dead ants just laying there in one spot.

Pretty awesome how ants bury their dead. Such fascinating creatures they are!

When I find ants in the bathroom I usually throw them in the toilet then piss on them while they struggle to survive. Teach the rest of those motha fuckas a lesson

i'm sure that they would not send out search parties...why would they decrease productivity of their colony for a few worker ants...if they are clever enough they would already know replacing them would be easier.

besides because they're so small their environment would be ever changing they'd have difficulty knowing where to look.

edit: a couple of mates and i put an apple core on the ground and watched the scouts come get it and then the rest of them come...we then flicked them off and put the apple somewhere else.

it was like hide and seek...they're very good.

mix together borax (its a type of dry laundry detergent) and sugar. then spread it around where youre seeing ants. they'll they'll find the sugar in it, and start taking all of it back to the colony, the borax included. then once they bring back the borax, it will kill off the colony as they all eat it. true fact.

that's pretty horrible...

like you're just eradicating the whole bunch, and aren't even there to get your shits and giggles.

i usually have good tolerance on cruelty to ants and i can't believe i'm disgusted.

Ants are often attracted to moisture because mold grows in moist conditions which the ants often forage for, which would explain why they are in your bathroom. Ants rely on a scent trail left by their scouts to guide the colony to food sources in your home. To stop them coming into your home, follow the trail (by following the ants) away from your home until you are some distance from your house, then spray the trail with vinegar, which removes the scent. Without a trail to your house, the ants will stay out until another ant accidently discovers a way in.

I read an article recently about parasites that can actually release chemicals into ants brains to control their movements, essentially possessing them, they even move the ants to spots where the parasite can develop better before killing them and moving on to other ants. That sounds far more clever than what the ants are doing.

I once watched a documentary on animal planet, they were studying the behavior of army ants who invade smaller and weaker ants' colonies, steal hundreds of eggs and bring them back to their own colony. After that they take care of the eggs until they pop and weak ants come out of them, find themselves in a 'strong and big ants' world and automatically conclude that they were brought to this world to serve them and be slaves for the rest of their lives..

Wierdest thing about ants is, this one guy did an expirement, in which he filled a small tub with water, then put a small plate to float on the water with alittle honey on it. He left to go somewhere for about an hour, and came back, and BOOM! He saw some ants climbing up onto the roof, and dropping themelves into the plate, and others were using leaves to make a bridge to the plate, so that ants could travel to and from the plate.

Evil little bastards. They are smart cause they work together. Imagine what humans could have if we all worked together.

I think humans will have to become more ant-like due to their higher population density. Individualism no longer benefits us in our tightly-packed urban centers.

I have a newfound love of ants after seeing the picture of that fungus thing growing out of ones head. I wonder if they'll accept me into their society...
