Try living in Ireland. It does not get any more bipolar weather wise then it does here.

i really think that everyone (except people in Florida) think that their weather is bad, an example is a saying Michiganders have. "if you don't like the weather in Michigan wait 5 minuets."

i get that phrase from my grandmother talking about living in Texas (not from, not currently residing) . I think thats a phrase a lot of people who dont travel use. and some that do.

my weather is simple, hot and humid 8 months, humid and cool 2 months (fall and spring fight over who is shorter in a given year) cold and humid for two months, usually rainy during all but summer.

59" a year in rain

winter usually is just wet and cold with a plains snow storm rolling in once every five years.

that said. dry baby powder, useless, unsure of how often you need to reapply, two weeks or less.

olive oil, weekly applications, but very effective.

alc/baby powder. seems best of three for long lasting in humidity, but works for less ants.

teflon. what i am using now. so far, two weeks no issues
Founding:
3 Solenopsis I/X
5 Tapinoma sessile
1 Nylanderia terricola/vivulda

Colonies:
1 Brachymyrmex patagonicus
1 Pheidole soritis
1 Tapinoma sessile

The difference between a hobby and a scientific pursuit, is detailed notes.

Hey, we here in SD say the same thing. (just replace Michigan)

Well, people in Florida might say it rains too much...... (just guessing, though)
