The constant stream of marching ants a la the Tom & Jerry cartoon is
more the norm IMHO.

WXYZ
If the norm in your house is a constant stream of ants then they must find your house attractive.
I doubt they are comming to see you, so maybe you have plenty of food for them lying around the
place.

Success! I finally tracked down a source of Nippon Gel, at our local
g*rden c*nter (I use the asterisks in the same sense as in w*rk; i.e.
something to be avoided wherever possible -- we rarely go to the g*rden
c*nter as the prices are outrageous there).

Thanks to everyone for all your helpful replies!
