Ants are difficult. I try to view the individuals as merely a part of the larger whole, the colony. An individual ant is capable of very little, but a colony can build a hill. Individually, they have nervous systems that are not as complicated as a 486 processor.

So when I have to kill of thousands, as I sometimes must, I think of it more like pruning a branch from a tree. I am not killing the cells in the branch, I am making the whole healthier.

That's what I tell myself anyway. Sometimes I believe it.

There's this stuff called chinese chalk, I think it's the same stuff that rock climbers use to powder their hands. Find where they're coming in, and pour the chalk around it - they won't cross the line. Swear to god!
