If there were a way to train these things to eat only fire ants, the world would be a better place. Like I said thought, train to eat ONLY fire ants. Plus when all the fire ants are gone, since these ants are "trained" to eat only fire ants they will die because they have no more food. Someone should get on this.

Weird, I have never seen them, and work 5 miles from 2 of the largest port facilities around here (which is where they supposedly came from).

Man, some of the comments from Orbiter's link are retarded.

Quote:
Nothing in this article confirms that the ants entered from abroad.Maybe some bio-terrorist had some ants escape from a lab in texas?there is no port in texas wgere a ship from abroad can dock, right? ...
The Port of Houston is the busiest port in the US in terms of foreign tonnage, second-busiest in the US in terms of overall tonnage, and tenth-busiest in the world.
Dang French people.

This is also not real new. First ones were seen in 2002 in Pasadena (which has no direct access to a Port of Houston Facility).

Texas A&M Site about them.
