    Dear Friends, i just happen to read this article , thoughts of sharing the same with you . i was really :eek:mg: shocked... .pls go thru it carefully.


    Incident One:

    A little boy died because surgeons found ants in his brain! Apparently
    this boy fell asleep with some sweets in his mouth or with some sweet
    stuff beside him. Ants soon got to him and some ants in fact crawled into
    his ear which somehow managed to go to his brain. When he woke up, he did
    not realize that ants had gone to his head. After that, he constantly
    complained about itchiness around his face. His mother brought him to a
    doctor, but the doctor could not figure out what was wrong with him. He
    took an X-ray of the boy and to his horror, he found a group of live ants
    in his skull. Since the ants were still alive, the doctor could not
    operate on him because the ants were constantly moving around. The boy
    finally died.
    So please be careful when leaving food stuff near your bed or when eating
    in bed.

    This might attract ants. Most importantly, NEVER you or your child eat
    sweets before going to bed. You or your child might attract ants while
    you are asleep.

    Incident Two:

    Another similar incident happened in a hospital in Taiwan. This man was
    warded in the hospital and was constantly warned by the nurses not to
    leave food stuff by his bedside because there were ants about. He did not
    heed their advice. Ants finally got to him. His family members said that
    the man constantly complained about headaches. He died and a post mortem
    or autopsy was done on him. Doctors found a group of live ants in his
    head. Apparently, the ants had been eating bits of his brain.

    So friends, better be safe than sorry. Never leave food stuff beside your
    bed you when you go to sleep.

    Please forward this to your friends and relatives.

    Luv
    Ramya

    Hi..Your article has scared me a bit.

    Now we have moved to a new apartment in US. Here i now and then find some 3-4 black ants on the carpet. I vaccum clean my carpets but still they appear and disappear. I'm not sure why them come. This has something to do with the place since my earlier apartment was not having this problem.

    Now is there any way to keep the ants off? Is there any protective way to keep ants away from reaching our body especially while sleeping?

    Your suggestions would really be appreciated.

    Thanks!

    During summer, in US, yes, the ants use to come and visit the kitchen or stay until winter comes.

    If you go to any American stores, will see lots of ants sprays; after the kids go to sleep, spray all over the edges of yr house and open one window up if it is safety at yr place. Check in the next day morning and if it stays still alive, continue the same.
