Volcano !

Okay, it's just a little ant hill. There's a certain place out in the vineyard where there are about fifteen or twenty of these little hills all together. They look like a miniature range of volcanoes.

What's funny is that whenever I'm out there and take a look, I never see any ants! Could they be nocturnal? Maybe they're away on vacation...

  2. Yes, you've sussed it - the ants are on vacation. I think only French ants do this, but I could be wrong. They go to places like the Caribbean, where there is a lot of sugar production. I guess the less affluent ones go up to northern France where the sugar beet is grown.
