Creative Mapmaking at the Art Colony

Creative Mapmaking with Karina Cutler-Lake
Tuition: $150
Supply Fee: $22

Experience the ways creative mapmaking techniques, rooted in studio art and design practice, can help to represent and document our life experiences. Often inherent in this exploration is the idea of Place, a way of understanding the unique properties of our surroundings and our location within them. Karina will guide students in examining these topics through art making, reading, and discussion fortified with local exploration. Students will leave with several new creative techniques, as well as a collection of handmade maps that illustrate how they interact with place and time.

Carpenter Ant Migration

You just got up to the cabin and for the first time ever you are seeing lots of ants or you treated for them and they suddenly come back in force. You see ants carrying larvae and pupae into the cabin and its obvious something is happening.

You are likely seeing what is called "colony migration".. This occurs when conditions force an existing ant colony to either move or fragment. Conditions where excess moisture or the fact that the tree, containing a nest, 50 feet away from the cabin came down in a wind storm can cause the colony to flee their nest cavity and go elsewhere.. Why do they choose your cabin?  They do so because the foraging ants have, over the years, probably identified your cabin as a good place to find water, food and shelter. The phermone trails are already set down and when the colony moves (probably in the middle of the night), it follows the paths that lead to recources. 

What should you do when this happens?

Don't panic. The visible ants are the biggest issue at this point. Any damage of significance will take time to develop. Grab your phone and give us a call and let us take a look. We have an excellent and green system to get them out and do so without impacting other wildlife. Standard pesticides are not the answer here. Killing visible ants will not impact the source and only make them avoid the areas you spray, not leave your cabin. 

Carpenter ants are beneficial insects.. They are a significant part of the process of reduction of wood to soil and in concert with other wood destroying insects, keep our forest floor from piling up with dead trees. Woodpeckers feed on them, in some cases, almost exclusively.. We want them out there.. just not in our cabins.

Now if we can just control the black flies!! LOL
