    Hello Borsia,

    I can't imagine having to deal with something like that! I'll gladly take my 4-6 week ant invasion. How long is the Monsoon season? Thanks for your answer. :)

    Your winged ants might be termites they swarm this time of year.

    As for slugs and snails if you can't beat them with snail bait there are some other options.

    They won't crawl over copper so put copper bands around trees or flower pots.

    Oddly where I live in the Philippines, basically jungle, we don't have nearly as many as one would expect. Maybe because I live in a very open area, as opposed to being surrounded by trees.

    Thanks for the comment! There are really good tips on line for home-made wasp traps. Insect infestations seem to vary from year to year too.

    Hi Sheila,

    Mosquitoes/flies/ants seem to be the worst insects that come in at night, but that depends on environmental conditions. Crowded conditions, food availability, and pest control overuse make urban areas worse. Thanks for your answer!
