    a little lighter fluid and a match would solve the problem faster and more efficiently.

    "a little lighter fluid and a match would solve the problem faster and more efficiently."

    As long as the ants are denser than water you could just add tensides to submerge them.

    @ klamz, the fact they float isn`t amazing, the degree of water resistance and surface tension they produce i think is.

    Madduck: If you were familiar with fireants you wouldn`t be so softhearted about them. These little bastards are hard to kill. They`re also a huge problem in the southern US. I`m glad we don`t have them up north.

    Duh, those pretentious "animal lovers" should stop crying "animal abuses". The weak will be killed by the strong; if you can`t wrap your head around that, you shouldn`t contribute to the human gene pool either.

    Yeah, that`s why they spread so dang fast, they just go to a river in groups, form a raft and go with the current.

    Fishies sure like `em.

    " This is why Insects will take over the world once we eliminate each other" ....mmmmm too late, they already have. The total weight of all the ants on Earth is about the same weight of all the humans on earth, Ants also outnumber us a million to one!
