    Leesah, believe me, I live in Florida, those were DEFINITELY fire ants. And they are nasty little buggers, too. One of the very few live things I don`t mind seeing suffer.

    there is more ant biomass than human biomass in the world, they can stand to lose a few dozen ants for that vid. it was cool, but I wish there was more variety, sparkler bomb maybe.

    I hate ants, especially fire ants. When I was younger, I accidentally sat in a pile of them and they literally tore up one of my legs.

    So basically I felt avenged seeing this. Too bad it wasn`t a stronger firecracker.

    I lost count trying to track the negative karma those guys racked up.

    That said, I used to like to rip ants limb from limb when I was a kid, so this wasn`t so cruel compared to that. If it makes you feel better, they don`t really have a brain to comprehend what`s going on, and those in the blast died before they could feel a thing.

    Notice the ones who feel bad for the ants or are calling "cruelty" are all from regions of the country where these fu*kers don`t exsist??

    Get bit by one, or maybe a few dozen, it is NOT a good thing. They have been known to swarm and kill human adults.

    They bite, they hurt like a b*tch, the bite pusses up like a zit, they are not "red" and I totally got a kick out of this vid.."FIRE ANTS ON FIRE" it`s been in my youtube fav`s for a while now..

    I agree with apoet4life. Although as a kid I had a bad time with these ants. Back in the day I had indulged in my share of sadism by burning the ants one at a time with bi-convex lens, pouring molten wax on them, cutting them and of course firecrackers. I feel what I had done was wrong :(

    Ah, the favorite US pastime.

    You`ve got to be good at something, to compensate for being an ignorant idiot, I guess. I`m somewhat torn between pity for the ants and the guys doing it.

    These are FIRE ants. They are horrible stinging pests, and firecrackers are too good for them - they need a shovelfull of poison.

    i had actually never thought of that. it`s wired in my brain to "stay the f*ck away" from those crazy things. screwing with `em is fun, but you better run the f*ck away after the initial strike cuz they`ve got reinforcements in the millions. i almost laughed when he said he wanted to find a bigger mound. you know, i`ll do that tomorrow, find a mound and light up a spinner or something. little b*stards gonna pay.

    the puppy cant really do poo...

    also, this isnt animal cruelty, actual animal cruelty will get u tickets or jail time, exterminating bugs/pests are peoples jobs...

    also, those things r so drating annoying anyways... they hurt like hell when they bite you so drat the ants and kill em all!

    That was really stupid. How many times is he gonna say "Fire ants on fire"? And those firecrackers were lame. If you`re gonna play immature pranks, use an M-80 or something. Or how about gasoline so you burn yourself. That would be more entertaining.

We found wasps once making a nest at the base of some bamboo. So we set it on fire... twas quality. Did i feel guilty... NO!... cause its only small pestering insects i`m killing... its not like its a frickin Kitten or something!!
