I apologize, but I am still snickering. If unwanted humans insist on coming
into my house, fouling it and stealing my food, I am prepared to attack
with something harsher than Raid. If ants are sentient, I wish I could find
an economic way to signal to the ants - some kind of sign that says in
ant-language "don't come in here or you will die" - or "private property,
trepassers will be crushed".
