That’s a Google so not everyone gets the same one. If you have ad personalization on then it could give you pest ads because of Formiculture being about ants

Still, it kills me that this is on a myrmecology forum  :lol:

Drew needs ads to make money and keep the forum going... if there was no ads FC would be a lot worse.

Yeah, quite unfortunately a lot of the time when people search for things related to ants, it's about killing them, thankfully I mostly see adds from Ant Keeping Depot and recently Buckeye Myrmecology

Um, uh, Ants!

I agree, its quite sad that much of the positive things you see about ants is a new way to kill them. But that's why we have Formiculture. We all have Drew to thank for that. And yes, I always see AKD ads at the top of the forum.

Honestly, I barely noticed those ads on the bottom lol. The only time I get "killing ants" ads are on youtube, which is rare.

I guess that's a good thing if you don't notice them. If they only knew who they where advertising to... :o

It might be helpful for those with wild Argies that raid their ants, haha.
