New life is starting to form on the trees during Windy Season. Leaves are green and big for the ants to make their new nests after old brown leaves were burnt off trees . Wattle blooms, stringrays and cockles are plump and the green bush ants are juicy and prime for harvest.
Using a secret traditional method, ant nest are carefully chilled at a specific temperature so excess worker ants can be carefully removed from the nest. Only worker ants are harvested – we steer clear of breeding times or taking queen ants from their nest, so life is plentiful next season.
