I have only one question ... Why?? meat ants are the most horrid things, you cant get rid of them , their nests go for hundreds of metres under the ground.
A very old Police station - many buildings in the late 1800's were built to be moved in a hurry. The frame was built so the boards could slip inside one on top of the other without nailing. It is like the actual studs of the frame are on the outside not the inside.This was one such building.
