'Crazy Ants' Pose a Danger to the South

Crazy Ants Pose a Danger to the South

While the Tawny crazy ants do not bite, they still pose a danger to the people of the Southern states. Damage to man-made property and the ecological balance are two of the hazards these crazy ants present to the South.


Tawny crazy ants, also known as Rasberry crazy ants, have the potential to wreak havoc with the delicate balance of the region they invade. Originating from South America, these voracious creatures eat anthing that comes in their path in Pac-Man fashion. They are especially sworn enemies of fire ants. The amount of flora and fauna they consume is just half the problem. There is more to come. 

They cause many species to starve to death for lack of vital nutrients. In particular, with the disappearance of fire ants, the whole system has been radically upset. The species kept in check by fire ants have multiplied. And the members of the ecosystem that flourished have dwindled to near extinction levels. 

Thanks to the crazy ants, the times sure are changing. They come in such huge numbers that their very presence is a calamity of the worst kind. Crazy ants find a way into every nook and cranny and infiltrate residential areas, plants and anything you can think of. 

Being an indigenous species of Argentina and Brazil, the Tawny crazy ants have yet to display the full force of their attack in the United States. The issue has already reached breaking point. With the people sick and tired of these tiny yet potent monsters, some solutions are being chalked out. Yet the conventional one of pesticides seems to be too simple to tackle crazy ants. The only way seems to be to have your house virtually cleaned up every year. And yet they keep coming again and again in droves.   


A senior technical professional with Terminix, Stoy Hedges, said, "The tawny crazy ant forms extended colonies from many subcolonies connected by trails. Once they find a resource site for food, they continually forage in trails to that site, including into buildings. They are known to be attracted to electrical junctions in HVAC units and cause malfunctions to this expensive equipment."
