  • Why red ants with black adomen not attracted to ant baits?

    My kitchen and bathroom is infested with ants. They nest around the windows and exterior walls (I live in high rise building). There are at least 3 types of ants I can identify, one of them does not seem to be attracted to ant baits.

    They are red in color with black adomen and nest in the bathroom. I used Terro-PCO liquid bait Combat and Bygone bait station but none seem to attract it. On one occasion I saw the ant carrying another decapitated ant, i thought this red ant must be a meat eater.

    What ant baits on the market should I use for this ant?

  • An aging population creates social and economic problems. Who is responsible for mitigating these effects?

    Not sure about western cultures, but asians generally cling on to the belief that filial piety ranks one of the highest in morality and ethics; and as such, developed a culture where the younger generation is expected to take care of their aging parents.

    However, in recent times, globally, this practice is weakening. An aging population creates social and economic problems if not handled properly. So, in your opinion, who is responsible for mitigating these effects, and how?

  • Help me identify a game?

    I can only provide description of it:

    1. I played it in the era of windows 95 but the game could be released before that.

    2. Objective of the game is to capture the flag from the opposing force.

    3. You play as a single military vehical and have to battle your way through the enemiy's fortified base structures to reach the flag and then bring back to your base station.

    4. There are 4 (i think) types of vehicle ie jeep, tank, helicopter, (i forgot the last). These vehicles are located in an underground station where you can return with your current vehical and pick another vehical.

    5. There are walls, trees, turrets, guns etc to blow and shoot at.

    6. If your helicopter go too far off the map over the seas, a submarine NPC will appear and launch a homing missle at you.

    7. all missles, bullets and guns and be dodged.

    8. you can play 1 or 2 player vs mode.

    9. In two player mode, you play on the same computer with the screen divided left and right sides.

    10. Top down view

  • Taylor Series: Why approximate when u can compute exact values?

    I dun understand why we need to approximate values at x when we already have the actual function to calculate the exact value at x. The term "neighbourhood of x" is also vague: how big is this neighbourhood?

    Thanks.
