I should have gone and looked first, but no!, I had to brazenly assume.
Today my friend and her daughter came out to see me for the first time since we've lived here. Gave them the grand tour of the yurt and then headed out back.
To see the ants beginning to make their way out from underground.
The only upside is that they didn't seem any larger or... evil-er... than they did before we had ants a la flambe.
