Oregon ants smell when you squish them. It's annoyingly true, and really obnoxious. Not only do you have Ant Fest 2010, but when you squish them, they smell like really bitter pine needles seeped in alcohol. This is not a good thing.
I squished and then cleaned after finding about 50-75 of them in my kitchen this morning. Here's hoping they were unimportant and unloved and therefore no rescue parties are sent after them.
