I repelled the strangest home invasion last night. The spare bedroom where my cable modem lay on the floor had a massive black carpet of Odorous ants just dozing around my cable modem. I was so shocked by it I didn’t think to take a picture of it before I disturbed them and they started going everywhere. Luckily I had a towel nearby that I quickly began sweeping them up and squashing them. I sprayed the room so they do not return. But I can find very little on Google about such behavior. Ants nesting in the open air? Perhaps due to recent rains flooding the below-ground nest? I am assuming around the cable modem for the warmth. It looked like they might have had a white collection of eggs or something among them.
