Boars, beaches, birds and ants
Continuing on the theme of animals, we had a bird fly into the living room and terrorize us before it perched high up on the ceiling. Seamus managed to catch it and take it outside. It was slightly shaken but it managed to fly away.
And of course there has been the perpetual problem of the tiny, tiny little ants in the house. They managed to live outside in the summer but they have returned. Sometimes they are looking for water, sometimes protein and sometimes sugar. Once a can of coke burst in the garage attracting thousands if not millions of these tiny bugs. We can't figure out what they are looking for right now. However, the worst thing is when you feel them crawling over your face at night. If they went in your ear could they reach your brain? Sometimes they respond to ant traps, taking the bait back to the nest, while other times they ignore the traps. Then it is time to spray and leave home for a while. You can even buy spray to spread around the outside of your house once a year but we have never resorted to that.
