Today was FIELD INSPECTION DAY.
Evidence of enemy infiltration was uncovered.
The Enemy Frontline was found.
I hereby submit evidence of the dastardly cunning of The Terminoidae.
Inside cupboards have been munched and crunched.
Hidden behind mountains of boxes seldom moved, they hid, probably for years.
Behind wall panellings the munching, crunching has continued.
Believing themselves to be invincible, they grew careless, more brazen.
Their voracious appetite increased .
Their muddy footprints became more visible as they penetrated deeper into enemy territory.
They wanted a change in diet. Perhaps the taste of wood grew wooden.
But they were unprepared for the clever tactics of The Inspector. The battle lines have been drawn. Two Boxes of Death have been deployed and baited. It is suspected that their main camp lies hidden in the Bottlebrush tree on the verge. A coded message has been delivered to Main Headquarters for the Exterminator to be sent on a Find and Destroy mission. It is but a matter of time now.
