(RNN) If you haven heard of Rasberry crazy ants yet, you will. They coming to a backyard near you. By the trillions.A single trail of the invasive South American ants first turned up near Houston, TX, in 2002. Within a year, there were hundreds of millions of them on the same site.The invaders from South America have spread to 24 Texas counties, and there are more than 1,000 infestations in Harris County, where they vastly outnumber the 4.1 million people who live there. They have been confirmed in Mississippi, Louisiana and Florida and have almost certainly gained a foothold in neighboring Gulf Coast states.They are called "crazy" because of their quick, random movements.They reproduce in mind boggling numbers, drive off or kill insects and animals on land they occupy. They can also short out appliances, drive homeowners to distraction and even shut down a chemical plant by fouling computer equipment."If you go to a rural area they taken over, it silent. What you hear is nothing, no grasshoppers, no Nike Air Max 90 2014 Mens Blue

"I seen 55 gallon drums full of them, nothing but dead ants. I seen 18 inch wide trails going up trees after honey bees."Highly adaptable; hard to killThere are other similar species in North America, but the tawny crazy ant is the one that gives experts nightmares. They are tiny less than 1/8 of an inch long. They don sting, but that as good as the news gets.You don exterminate the invaders so much as contain them, Rasberry said. Treatment is expensive and requires repeated applications that can cost thousands of dollars a year, far too expensive for many who have been affected.Every single home in a neighborhood has to be treated, or the ants will be back in a matter of days, Rasberry said.They are tropical insects, so they die off in the winter. But when spring comes, they repopulate quickly, doubling or tripling their numbers every two weeks, he said.They been discovered in North Texas, where the winters can be quite cold. Rasberry said he seeing more and more instances of the ants migrating indoors where it warm when the weather turns cold, an adaptation he seldom saw a few years ago.Commercially available pesticides sprays and powders you buy at retail stores don work well. Crazy ants don eat the baited poisons that can control fire ants, another Deep South nemesis the crazy ants are steadily killing off. It costs a few billion dollars a year to control fire ants, and that a drop in the bucket compared to what it could cost to contain the new ants.Raspberry said in dollars and cents terms, if research isn stepped up and if the spread continues, controlling crazy ants "is going to make fire ants look like Christmas."I been screaming about this for 10 years but the right people aren listening," he said. He foresees a related Nike Air Max 90 Gray And Pink crisis that could be as bad as the ant infestation.If a homeowner tries to treat his own property, he probably buy a commercial product. It won work. So he buy more and double the dosage. It fails again. So he repeats the process, using even more."When all is said and done, some guy put 200 pounds of poison on an area where 10 pounds is recommended. Then it rains. The poison gets into the water table," Rasberry said. Robert Puckett, who is a PhD. in entomology, a researcher and teacher at Texas A University, was among the first to study the species."When I first started talking with folks who worked with the original infestations, when they told the stories of what they seen, I thought, well, this is hyperbole, this can be true," Puckett said. "Then I saw it."The catastrophic effect these insects could have on agriculture, the economy and entire ecosystem of the Southeast is the kind of thing that keeps Puckett awake Nike Air Max Bw Ultra Lotc (London)

at night.They climb trees and invade bird nests what would happen if they took over a chicken farm? How would they affect, cattle, other livestock? Could they infest feed, crops in the field, silos packed with grain or sugarcane?Rasberry is horrified by the possibilities."There are no products labeled for pastureland. None. Zero," he said. "Nobody is funding research. I was on the Crazy Ant invasive Task Force. It was a dog and pony show for the public. They never did anything. It already too late to stop them. The longer we wait to do the research to control them, there nothing we can do."

birds, nothing but the wind going through the leaves," said Tom Rasberry, the Pearland, TX, exterminator who discovered that first colony in 2002.It earned him the dubious honor of having the pests named for him. They are also known as the tawny crazy ant because of their light brown coloration.For humans, home infestation creates a miserable situation. Grandma can watch TV without ants crawling on her legs, as Rasberry put it. Whole neighborhoods in Houston have been overtaken, he said."I been into homes where you couldn drop a dime on the floor without hitting three or four ants," he said. Nike Air Max 90 Womens Beige
