I wouldn't normally share video of my bathroom with the general public (not that anyone who doesn't know me ever stops by) but I just had to share this.
Ants are just part of the life here in Hawaii, just as are cockroaches, cane spiders, centipedes, geckos, and other creepy crawlies, good and bad. Doesn't that just make you want to move here? Well, we've always been plagued by these teeny ants, they show up in the weirdest places of the house. And they are super annoying when you get one on you as they are so tiny that they are hard to find, but yet they tickle like crazy. Since we live in an apartment building that is as old as sin I don't think that there is any way to even begin to actually eliminate them, but I do my part to kill off the populations that I come across. As I did to this one shortly after I taped this. This is BY FAR the most ants I've seen in one place - who knows what they were doing?
Luckily my children are not scared off or freaked out by ants, as Isaac went to use the bathroom and found the millions of little critters. He even thought it was pretty cool. What boy wouldn't?
After a little research online I think that I've identified them as ghost ants. Here's a little more info from the Ant Institute (didn't know there was such a place) if you're so inclined.
