An open letter to the electric ants

Dear Cairene Ants,

There is a garbage can located in the stairwell. The tenants of each apartment faithfully empty their trash into the aforementioned can. It is full of delectable items, almost too good to describe:
Empty yoghurt cups, banana peels, peach pits, milk bottles, juice containers, and countless other various food scraps.

Yours, at absolutely no cost to you! It’s a smorgasbord of a deal.

If this does not appeal to your palate, try the streets. Have you looked at the streets here lately?
Chip bags, soda cans, apple cores (all the more!)…

All this and more, free to you! Act quickly (and organizedly).

Sincerely,

The Heiss Family

PS. Stay out of our kitchen, you nasty little creatures!

PPS. And forward this on to your cockroach friends!

  1. :-D I think you should either be singing, "Food, Glorious Food" to them, or that song that Templeton sings at the fair in the original animated "Charlotte's Web."
