They took over Spain! You're next!
Researchers find 3,600-mile ant supercolony.
Interesting link! That's pretty cool...
Any rumors or speculation that these "super ants" were responsible for DIVX or P&S DVD's is unsubstaniated at this time.
Maybe we could get those planes that they use for forest fires to dump Raid all over them....
Well after Flik and Princess Atta took out Hopper it was just a matter of time, wasn't it?
> But wouldn't that kill them?
I think that's the idea.
Yeah...damn forests! They get in the way of shopping malls and Circuit City's!
To quote an MST3K episode "You don't see many of these trees anymore...well, down it goes"
Well, to get back on topic...why must the ants die? I didn't read anything in the article that they were destructive or endangering anything. Man doesn't control everything in the world...he just likes to think he does
Yeah. If man can't control it...they PAVE it!
Pave the Earth...it's the only way to be sure!
Haven't any of you guys seen Them?!? We're doomed!!!
I'm totally live and let live with ants. I'll let them live if they stay out of my house. Those European supercolony ants are thus far respecting my desires.
But far more disturbing (if one wants to have a bit of fun) is that giant fungus in the Northwest US...
Wow, billions of ants cooperating over a 3600 mile stretch, and we can't even get people within our same countries (hell, within the same cities or neighborhoods!) to cooperate with each other!
Man, ants are the superior species. I need to check out Antz and A Bug's Life again...
If they're not fire ants, and they're not ruining crops or somebody's picnic, I say let 'em live.
I think they should give me the ants. I could sit amongst them, and call them my minions...and of course have them go out and "do my bidding."
Man, ants are the superior species.
Um, I think you missed the part about if two ants meet who are not related they fight to the death.
So basically these ants have formed their own little Nazi empire, where only "perfect" ants are allowed, and all others die.
When I was a kid living on a ranch, I collected ants and made them fight. Actually did that for my science project in the 6th grade. Probably cruelty to animals now, but it sure was cool.....I was a kid playing God, It was like playing with GI Joes except the little buggers would actually fight and have wars, bury their dead, and basically play capture the flag (with food). Ah yes, the good ol' days.
When I was a kid, my friends and I found an old wood box that was infected with termites. We busted the box open and dumped all the termites onto an open dirt area. Then we stirred up a fire ant hill about 10 feet away and waited. Sure enough, the Ant Bureau of Investigation smelled the termites and determined that it must have been them who kicked over their hill, and they sent in the troops to settle the score.
I can't tell you who won the war because it was dinnertime and I had to run home.
I was only kidding about the Raid, guys...
But seriously, I get ants in my house every spring/summer. They must pay the ultimate price.
