    Bug Mystery

    I have solved this mystery, but intended to post it a while back for detective fun. Can anyone guess where the ants are coming from? We had a very strange situation where hundreds of ants (winged and unwinged) were showing up in the skimmer. I discovered that they would first appear in the...
