halB: They're not that bad. They're only slightly more noticeable than sugar ants. They're called crazy because they travel in random brownian-motion like paths. This means they wind up in random weird places. But they don't bite. I'd rather have them than fire ants.
Jacob_Roberson: their spread can be limited if people are careful not to transport them inadvertentlyGood luck with that. You're counting on large numbers of people to a) give a damn, b) not be jokers and do it intentionally, c) pay attention enough to even know, d) do all that in a concerted way. Good luck herding those cats.
SoupJohnB: Maybe they should be declared as "illegal aliens" by Congress, subject to any current or potential immigration laws/I know, I know; Get thee to the Politics Tab
Truther: But - does their bite hurt as badly as a fire ant's?
