    Link: Invasive Fire Ants Lose Heads To Flies - Of all the methods being used to fight a fire ant invasion in the Southeast, this one might be the grossest.

    I find it hard to believe that the flies only attack fire ants and not other types of ants.

    That guy may be the smartest fire ant dude on the planet. Personally, I`m more concerned that he might push a five year old kid into the back of his pickup and party like it`s nineteen nintey nine. One creepy motherf*cker.

    Otherwise - AWESOME. Except for the poor ant.
    I`m not sure which one is worse - the ant that bites people or the fly that kills the ant that bites people.

    We could never kill all the bugs in the world even if we wanted to. I once heard that ants equal the weight of all humans on earth. I don`t know if that is true, but I don`t doubt it.

    Fire ants are a minor nuisance compared to the mosquito. More people die from Malaria, Yellow Fever, and Dengue Fever than die of Aids every year.

    While those flies aren`t attracted to other species now, once the fire ant population is in check, it isn`t unlikely that the flies will adapt to similar species such as native fire ants.

    ga, notice how the top of their region is right where I live, Chattanooga, Tennessee (same place as the butt ugly hookers)... lucky me. I once put a foot on their nest while hiking, I felt a small sting, and when I looked down my whole frekin shin was black with those suckers. I had to jump in the pond to get them off and then I spent the night in the hospital. Those little bastards aren`t fun.

    Not killing these bugs will destroy our ecosystem anyway, since they are a human caused invasive species. Go stupidity!

    I couldn`t watch it all the way through when i heard they lay eggs in their head. Images of head spolsions like scanners come to my mind. Or those movies where the aliens burrow into you then suddenly burst from your abdomen and eat you like a cocoon thing. Sure ants should die but this is cruel. I have a headache! o.O

    I`ve heard that the fireants are preventing the spread of killer bees, as they tend to raid the nests for honey. i`d rather have those annoying little bastards then killer bees. killer bees are terrifying.

    I`m gonna coment on
    "boredfjord:Intelligent design my ass. God is either fake or a sadistic bastard,"

    first off, im an speculativ atheist.
    my thought about that whole "What kind of God would design such a thing!?" is that well, humans are "designed" to think that what ever looks like it could harm our health is automaticly a bad thing. therefor we take a step away from the grose spider that could be filled with poisen. but even if it isnt, its like a threat and we wonder "what kind of God would design such a thing!?" but it is actualy helping keeping some sort of balance in nature, keeping one species supplied with food or keeping another species down on population.

    its all in some sort of master plan. if we think its ugly, we wont bother to interveen. thats the idea behind according too me. but God is some fake BS invented by the ancient civilations Elites to form a set of rule to keep the servants and general folks in check.
    Thx&a
