The environment is pretty wet and hot in Taiwan lately.

There are many tiny ants who could fly get into my house because I turned on the lights in evening.

Although they made me annoyed because after they died in my house, I had to clean their corpses, wings on the floor and anywhere they passed, this situation also piqued my curiosity about how they called in English.

Supposedly, they are a type of white ant and woods are their staple foods, is it true?

Anyway, I dislike them at all, they are very disgustful.

I also learned a scientific English word:Phototaxis.

It means when they notice the lights, they will rapidly rush to the source of lights.

This is pretty stupid, however, they are merely worms, aren't they?

(雖然他們讓我很煩因為他們飛進我家之後就死了,我得清潔他們在地上的屍體,翅膀以及任何他們經過的地方,這情況也激起我想知道他們的英文是怎麼說的好奇心)

Supposedly, they are a type of white ant and woods are their staple foods, is it true?
(據說,他們是一種白蟻並且比木頭做為他們的主食,這是真的嗎?)

Anyway, I dislike them at all, they are very disgustful.
(總之,我一點也不喜歡他們,他們令人作嘔)

I also learned a scientific English word:Phototaxis.
(我同時學到了一個科學英文單字:趨光性)

It means when they notice the lights, they will rapidly rush to the source of lights.
(這代表他們注意到燈光時.他們會迅速地衝向光源)

This is pretty stupid, however, they are merely worms, aren't they?
(這很蠢,不過,他們只是蟲子,對嗎?)
