Did you know that another name used for the aardvark is that of the anteater? What do you know? And no prizes this time for guessing what this creature’s stable diet would be. You wonder though, would it be a good idea or would it be practical to install such a creature in your back garden? Do not ask the writers how but some, very few, people have pulled this off. But they also need special permits to bring over exotic pets. And they have to show the authorities clear proof that they have the ability and facilities to provide these special creatures with their wellbeing in their extremely unusual settings.
One thing they might not have to worry about is food. Because maybe there’s more than enough, quite a few thousand actually, to go around. Of course we’re talking about ants right about here. Ants in small colonies would not be noticed, they would be considered an important part of nature just like many other species, but when there is too many of them, oh dear. You wonder too whether the anteater would not mind trying something different tonight. Like how about a helping of termites? If not, then call the staten island exterminators just as soon as you have finished reading this story.
Because if you leave things just the way they are, you could be sitting with an even bigger problem later on. Go out one weekend and come back the next day and you might just find that you do not have a house to come back to. Ants may be hungry for work but termites, they are extremely greedy. For food. Wood, paper, pulp, plaster and all those other bits that go into keeping your house in one piece.
