On our walk home from the bus stop we pass the largest ant hill I have ever seen... perhaps about a foot high against a wall.

When it is a bit drier then I will turn the camera on as I have a poke about.

I liked how they pumped it full of cement, and once dried, the earth was picked away around it showing all the intricate and engineered tunnels.

Clever little buggers.  :hat3: ;D

So when you have a poke around your ant hill Babs, will you have a rather large 'Ready Mix' truck on standby ?.  ;D

I'd be too tempted to pour it through a letter box or two nearby.  :gig:    >:D

I feel sorry for the ants.I wouldn't be very impressed if someone filled my home full of cement.

Kill joy.... ;D

Since the population of ants of all types are larger than humans on this Earth, I doubt the investigation of the workings and construction of this ant hill will make a lot of difference.

Pumping cement through your letter box could well make a difference.
