Ants in our Pants

It’s the first laundry day in our new house near Kuala Lumpur and our washing has attracted a swarm of winged insects; flying ants I think.

Flying Ants

We’ll have to change our conditioner!

Fortunately the bugs seem very drowsy (dying perhaps) and are easy to shake off.

    they are called Kelkatu (or kalkatu) in Bahasa. In rural villages, it happens once a year or so…. and the house floor is full of them once we got up in the morning. They are also attracted to flourecence light at night. I never heard anyone been bitten by these creatures. Not dangerous, just annoying having to sweep the floor & flush the drain
