New kind of Ant in Texas
Here there is a new kind of ant in South Texas that is a pain in the ars to all that encounter them. Good thing about them is that they eat Fire ants.
Any body down in Houston way seen these little sh#t's ? If ya do keep em down there
You don't have to ASK
What I'm Against...
If you know what
If they eat fire ants they cant be all that bad what makes them a PITA?
That would be my Ant Louis + Ant Selma. Boy they love those critters.
Are half black and red?
I know those buggers. If I get bitten I swell up for 2 weeks.
If bitten take an antihistamine.
There is a product that works. It looks like little yellow balls smaller than bb's
You circle their mound and they take the bb's to their queen and that's it.
Tracers work both ways.

Down here in Corpus there was a story about them shorting out electronics in Houston. I havent seen them around here yet.
I read about these ants this morning.
Crazy ants. From the islands. They eat fire ants, they are as big as fleas, are attracted to electronic devices like computers.
I think instead of a wall along our border maybe a big water filled trench around Texas.
Tracers work both ways.
Keep them down there.

Don't know if this will help, but have had some success with it. Got this off the internet. If you liberally sprinkle instant grits on ant mounds it is supposed to kill them. Seems ants can't pass gas (have you ever heard one of them do so?) and when they consume the instant grits, they swell up and it kills them.Tried this at home and it appeared to be working after about 24 hours, but it rained. You need dry weather for it to work and we've been getting too much rain. The article warned about puttting it out if you had ducks or geese since they can't pass gas either and it could kill them. Soon as it gets dry, I'm going to try again. Good luck.
On a similar note, I heard someone say the other day that mice/rats can't burp. So if you leave a little soda for them every night eventually it will kill them.
