    Oh dear. (I realise I shouldn’t be laughing right now but I can’t help myself.) Did you find a solution?

      Laughing is the appropriate response! Solution was the boys went and slept in the guest hut with Lydia the next two nights (like camping :p), and then returned. Their home base is still nearby though and we haven’t found it so it could happen again!

    We had army ants where I grew up in Tanzania. Putting the feet of the bed in cans of water is a reasonable defence at night. Fascinating creatures aren’t they.:)

      That’s a good idea! Unfortunately their mattresses were on the ground :/. FAscinating indeed. I’m still not sure what they were doing with all those egg cases. Moving in or raiding another nest?

    Just brilliant! I was trying to work out what on earth Tessa said near the end. “Frikedy dek”???

    There could be a solution. Up the road there is a set of flats that are not having any problem with ants that we know of. It could be because they have a sign
