Tiny hole in a mound of sand,
Each ant created by our Lord's hand
Each ant knows it's place in God's great scheme
Running their hill as a tiny team.
Instinct, evolution, or all in God's plan
Working together better than man.
Angela S. Young
These pictures show just some of the anthills right outside our back door. They are everywhere. My first picture is from the web and shows a model of what their homes look like under the hills. They have a series of underground chambers, all connected by tunnels. They have rooms designated as kitchens, nurseries, even bedrooms for mating. These ants come into our kitchen and we have to seal up all the food. Even then, they crawl on the counters. I should step on these anthills and destroy their homes, shouldn't I? Stop it at the source. But as much as I kill ants without a qualm, I can't bring myself the smash their houses. I'm not sure if this says something good about me or not. I think of all that work and labor that went into the making of the hills, and don't want to destroy them with one step. Why can I kill a living ant and not it's home? Especially when it might help keep them out of MY home. But perhaps destroying the hills would just leave them scattered and they would come inside more then they do now. So what do you say, shall I be a homewrecker?
