'Stowaway' ants spreading around world

3 posts in this topic

The problem of invasive ants may be far worse than previously thought.

A Spanish team of scientists has found that larger than expected numbers of the insects are being unwittingly shipped around the world.

The researchers warn that many of these species are establishing colonies in their new habitats that could pose a threat to the environment, infrastructure and human health.

Where I live, it seems that we have to contend with a new species of ant every summer.

It's nice of the ants to take the "One World" thing to heart.

I don't care about the fire ants, we don't have little kids running around the yard, but I am not looking forward to a crazy ant problem. We have them here, but they aren't an issue at our home... yet.
