One minute I'm enjoying my tea and reading, the next minute I see my garden full of flying ants :eek: :ant: :ant: :ant:
Not an ant person at all, I wasn't sure how to get rid of them without using chemicals which might harm the birds, plus I didn't really want to kill them, so I researched and found a recommendation to sprinkle cinnamon. It worked well, they don't like cinnamon and have moved on :nod:

Opened the back door first thing to feed the birds and there was an ant swarm right outside - I mean, right outside. All over the patio just running around.
Thought it might be Flying Ants' Day but there was no sign.
Sprayed with Nippon :shrug:.
