    Re: Ant Problem - Please advise!!

    Agreed
    I have to add, ants may not kill a hive but I have witnessed three strong hives of mine abscond last year to escape the pressure that ants put on them.

    Re: Can't upload photos?

    Yeah, I've seen some people on here get bent out of shape over pictures being posted.

    I know...I thought volume was a deciding factor when they chose a place to go but here they are.
