Note to all fire ants -- don't stick your dick in crazy.

No subby,

Crazy ants,covered in acid, on meth,driving miniature bulldozers.

Think of the children.

Crazy acid ants.

Craants.

Formic acid.  "formica" - Latin for "ant". Repeat from 1749?

The Crazy Ants have potassium benzoate.

So, if I want to battle fire ants, just smear my body with acid and dive right in?

Sounds like a plan.

Ain't no ants like fire ants in Texas.  Bigger 'n Dallas, 6-shooter packin' and full of Jesus and tea-party derp.

fta there have been reports of crazy ants destroying beehives, (...) They invade by the thousands, and can cause electrical boxes and electronic equipment to short circuit, he said.

"Generally, people would like to have their fire ants back," LeBrun said.


Thousands of acid-covered ants shorting out a house's electrical system? Being a real estate agent in Texas has to be fun.

I remember, riding my bike in South Texas, seeing fire ant mounds in the pastures, with cattle grazing, and the cattle stepping around the mounds. That's a helluva behavior.

The how is they were out-competed by the tawny crazy ants. There are maps and articles about this on the internet. The crazy ants are also being successful near Austin.

Is this an improvement?  FIre ants are embodied evil, but it doesn't sound like the crazies are less destructive.

First it's ants. Then it's beetles. The final step is spiders. Ants are a gateway insect. WAKE UP, SHEEPLE!!!i1136.photobucket.com

Ants are hardcore.

They're also a good model of what a group of communist amazons would do.

Just need to find the tawny version of the zombie ant fly. It was released in Dallas and a few other cities a couple of years ago and BAM people are saying "what happened to the fireants?"

What happened is we unleashed a zombie plague on the fire ants. You don't publish a press release saying you unleashed a zombie plague.

Wasted a lot of time on this game back in the day, would have been better with acid.

On the one hand, their bites are far less painful and only last for a second or two. On the other hand, they're hell on electronics and small animals. Too lazy to build nests. On the gripping hand, they're a marvel of evolution. Massive multi-queen colonies  extraordinarily large.

I'd be happy to say goodbye to fire ants. We don't have them here and I don't want them. But the crazy ants, although less likely to over-run the inmates of old folks homes and hospitals, over run computers and wiring and do a heck of a lot of damage. Let them fight each other to a stand still. What we really need is yet another species of ants that mind their anty business but are Hell on fire ants and crazy ants.

If you know of any ant like that, Argentina, send 'em this way.

Apparently the Polar Vortex is doing a fine job refilling the Great Lakes this Winter. I hope it is killing Argentine ants by the trillion.

Hey, I'm pro-environment, not sentimental. If we have taken over the role of top predator, let us be the best top predators ever. We have more brains than most or all of our predecessors. Let us use them.

At the moment we are senselessly experimenting in creating entirely new climates and entirely new communities of life. We should probably play conservatively, by which I mean scientifically and environmentally, because we you play God, all Hell breaks loss and you can't know what the results will be because you are neither omniscient nor providential.
