This thread makes ants seem like some cute characters out of disney movie...
Among all uninvited house guests including lizards and cockroaches, ants are the ones I have less grudges on. I get **** off when I see their corpses at the bottom of my water jug... I don't know if that's how ants committ suicide or got drown when they were quenching thirst, but there're other water resources they won't attack...
Just few days ago I saw an army of ants travelling in a line, traced it to my shoe box that had been there since day one and immediately threw away the box. Why would they got to it? Been busy tracing their little homes in the walls and sealed it up, but can still see homeless ants wandering around looking for new hideouts!

Found this site - even though it's in England, there are others like us out there.

Why are earthworms important?

and why ants are important
Ant Blog: Search Results
Is there anything that says why cockroaches are important too? I know lizards helps to get rid of flies and mosquitos, though both of these house pests are equally my phobias. Well, maybe I should start a thread on them that might probably help to change the way I see them...

You think it will make any difference when they take over? They won't care. They'll tear you into little tiny pieces and carry you back to the nest just the same as they'll do to me. Your only hope is to band together with your own kind, and help us destroy all of them before they destroy all of us! It's not too late to change your mind...

Sounds like a good idea, maybe you should.

I woke up around 3am this morning and went in the pool....... There was 4 or 5 creatures struggling for thier lives in the water.... I picked them up in my hand and talked to them a little and placed them safely on dry ground

Makes me feel sad when our little creatures fall into the pool and cant do anything but struggle until they are gone,must be horrible


Thankfully I have saved more than not.... A couple times I found rats (or chipmunks im not sure) in the pool.... Sadly everyone of them was perished before I got to them
