I've got a crazy ant that used to move around quite a bit. That was after my uncle dumped her crazy ass, of course.

crazy ants could displace an earlier invader, the red fire ant. The fire ants build large mounds and can inflict painful stings, something the crazy ant does not do.

I've got a good sized red ant colony on my property and they suck.  But I'm not sure I want this:

they have super-high numbers...They call them super colonies. You're talking about massive populations, and they can affect other wildlife, even small birds and lizards. They just eat everything.

Being in Colorado, I'm hoping that they don't like the altitude so I won't hav to worry about them.

In the winter, the gorillas ants simply freeze to death. They're expanding a bit because of gloabl warming, but it will take a lot of global warming to get fire ants in Colorado.

True story.  I have some in my yard off and on, but I feel as though the fire ants (here in Texas anyway) are still tougher'n any damn ant you bring its way *spits*, because they haven't overtaken.

I could just also not know what I'm talking about.  I spend a lot of time hanging out in my yard tending to my gardens, though.

We were just talking about this the other day here in Austin, Crazy Ants have kicked out the invictus ants.  YAY!
Without invictus eating everything, we are now getting a huge surge in the population of spiders and rats.  BOOO!

I pointed this out a few years ago when it was noted how many invictus beds we had in the back yard.  Yea, a lot of them.  But they fricking at everything else so all we had were invictus to deal with.  Which were annoying but manageable.  Now we have a power vacuum that is getting filled.

So far I'm OK with this. Fire ants no longer exist in the Houston area. If I get an infestation of tawny ants, I see if the old DE trick works on them.

According to the fire ant colony in my yard in Colorado right now, there's already been enough global warming for that to happen.

Additionally, this thread has made me look further for effective ways to get rid of them without killing my dogs.  Anyone have any experience with Amdro?  It appears effective and doesn't appear toxic to animals.  Ordering some to try but curious if anyone has had any luck with it.

Spiders don't bother me, as long as they kill wasps / flies. I have a bat house to handle the mosquitos, and enough cats in my neighborhood to handle rats the snakes don't get.

Amdro is not interesting to dogs. It's just small granules of poison the workers carry back to the queen. Ignore the instructions and dump the stuff on top of the mounds.

The thing about crazy ants, first of all, they don't have above ground anthills, just a small holes in the ground.  But underneath the ground is a gigantic nest.  Since they don't follow trails, it is hard as heck to find out where they live.

There are already stories about dogs going out into a back yard to poop and coming back half mad because they are completely covered with crazy ants.  They won't go back there.  If you walk through that yard you'll be covered in crazy ants up to your knees.

They are very resistant to pesticides.

I concur with simplicimus about the Amdro. Lived in Houston for 20 years, the best way to kill fire ants was Amdro. Solid dose (2 tbsp or so) directly on top of every mound. Just make sure it is not going to rain for a day or two.

Their stings are nowhere near as painful or life threatening as fire ants. They also love to build their homes in electrical equipment. But I have a lot of DE (Diatomaceous Earth) for my swimming pool, and its supposed to be effective against other ants. Very small crystals, death of a thousand cuts to insects.

They're difficult to get rid of because they're actually native to Florida, contrary to popular belief. The bizarre rumor that they were brought in to handle mosquitoes is actually an in-joke amongst entomologists (a group that I know more about since my friend graduated with his degree in a few years back).

Meh. In CA we've been dealing with Argentine ants for as long as I can remember. Suckers don't need to do a "nuptial flight" to create new nests. They expand by "fission." A few workers march off with a queen and voila, another sub-colony. If they discover a large food source, queens can even be seen marching along with the workers. And the sub-colonies are friendly to each other, creating a "super-colony" that can cover entire cities. Sure, you can spray or bait them, but it's like pissing on a volcano. Definitely contenders for most successful species ever.
