Seven ants attempted to cross the tape barrier and failed. The scouts trapped inside circled the barrier and felt along their crumb trails, but have not found their escape route. As much as I avoid wishing ill of living creatures, I wish they never will.

It's hard to think of ants as individual living creatures anyway. They are units of a whole, and to kill off a collection of scouts is like snipping the fingernail of a roving touch.

No new ants have come inside, that we know of.
