In our bed? Now there was a possibility. Perhaps caught on the bed linen through the night as I slept? Again, no. As I woke my husband and told him the shocking news, I began to cry. He comforted me and in his usual practical fashion, first checked every inch of our bed and the carpeted floor underneath, and then ‘walked’ me through every move I’d made since I awoke. We swept floors and vacuumed and examined our dusty collections with a magnifying glass. That magnifier quickly became an essential heavy duty tool in our investigations of every nook and cranny; every knothole and join between floorboards and skirting.
The Jack Jumper Ant is not like any normal ant. It is part of the species of the bulldog ant and is native to Australia. This ant is sometimes referred to as the Hopper Ant or Jumper Ant. The ants are spread throughout the country but are mostly found in Tasmania, rural Victoria, New South Wales, Australian Capital Territory, and the southeast area of South Australia. This unique ant can grow up to 12 millimeters long and are very aggressive and vicious. Black in color with yellow or orange legs, their name is given due to their jumping motion. This well named ant can usually only jump five or six centimeters, however they can jump up to 20 centimeters if necessary.

On the Gold Coast I met up with the same people I had travelled with earlier, we mostly did surfing and bummed around the area. We also checked out Frazier Island, did some swimming with the sharks and some skydiving. I later told my dad that I went skydiving and he said he would have really worried about me if he had known. But when I was back in Canada, my dad and I decided to go skydiving together and he really loved it. That was great.
First is remembering Twitter is social media – emphasis on the social part. Don’t just post – or Tweet – your Adelaide business and offers. Encourage contact. Interact with followers. If your business is automotive related post links to stories, information and short tips about automobiles. If you Tweet without interacting it’s somewhat like having a conversation with yourself. Stop and ask a question from someone else, or comment on what someone else says. Notice your followers! Remember we all have different talents and skill levels – Twitter isn’t just about promotion but rather a conversation 140 characters at a time.
Australian cities differ much from the cities in Europe. They look more like the American ones, but still have their own appearance. There are no ancient attractions; it’s a kingdom of glass, steel, modern buildings and comfortable roads.
Their nests are normally hidden under a rock, so be careful where you are walking. These ants are carnivores and scavengers. Before eating them they sting their meal or victims then inject them with venom. The number of stings from the Jack Jumper ant is equal to about double that for bees. When you get stung by this bull-ant, it can cause anaphylaxis, which is a severe and life threatening allergic reaction in which the person often gets a rash, feels their throat tighten, also has swelling of the lips, and face as well as having very difficulty in breathing.
