OK ah cheated. That's a new wurd tae me - so thanks Senga.

Ants. Only a couple of real experiences. When ah wis a teenager we lived in a hoose furra bit whit wis plagued by ants in the summer. They defied aw efforts tae get rid ay thum - so we moved.

Then aboot five years ago ah wis oot walkin up past the Linn o Dee up in Aiberdeenshire. It wis a scorchin hot day and ah sat doon beside the path on whit glancingly looked like a lump of stane. Ah took a long swig fae ma wattur bottle, enjoyin takin the weight aff ma feet... nothin happened for aboot 30 seconds.

Hunners ay thoosands ay ants everywhere, and ah mean everywhere. And bite they do. Ah came back doon along that path the next day and stopped tae take some foties of where ah'd been sittin. Ah wis mibbae twenty feet fae the anthill. Ma boots and the surrounding ground wis jist teeming wi thum. Ah didnae linger this time.

Ah'm sure thit ants huv thur niche in wur planet's ecosystem and of course ah do forgive thum thur trespasses. But they huv absolutely nae rights tae be anywheres inside yer troosurs.
