    Hairy, crazy ants invade from Texas to Miss.

    NEW ORLEANS (AP) It sounds like a horror movie: Biting ants invade by the millions. A camper's metal walls bulge from the pressure of ants nesting behind them. A circle of poison stops them for only a day, and then a fresh horde shows up, bringing babies. Stand in the yard, and in seconds ants cover your shoes.

    Winter is coming. Hopefully they can't live through ice.

    Just what we need around here, more insects.

    If one gets electrocuted, its death releases a chemical cue to attack a threat to the colony, said Roger Gold, an entomology professor at Texas A&M.

    "The other ants rush in. Before long, you have a ball of ants," he said.
    They will eat just about anything plant or animal.

    I use to live in west texas and the ants were always bad but we went to visit some friends there in 08 and our SUV was parked for a few days while our friends and us drove in their vehicles. When it was time for us to go, our SUV wouldn't start. We put it in the shop and ants got up into the starter and the entire steering column. It needed new wires, switches and starter!
