Billions of electronic-eating crazy Rasberry ants (named after their exterminator Tom Rasberry) are invading Texas now! It looks like the plot of a low-budget horror film. But unfortunately for most of our residents it is very much a reality. Trillions of tiny crazy ants, known also as paratrenicha species, are just running everywhere. Fire alarms are set off by them, domestic gas meters seize up and pumping stations put out of action. Unlike other ants, which move purposely in single file, they swarm in random directions, have a special liking for computers and other modern electronics and refuse to die when sprayed with over-the-counter poison.
Now these monsters are attacking homes in Houston and marching towards NASA Johnson Space Center and William P. Hobby airport, putting our state officials in a panic. And it is clear as day these crazy creatures, which ruin computers and short out electrical circuits, are of serious hazard to the Houston Space Center and local airport.
And although our press tries to sell us the idea that the colonies of these insects have arrived to Texas on a certain ship, which docked at Houston's cargo port, it is wet idea! In reality there is no port in Texas where a ship from the Caribbean (from where supposedly they originate) can dock, right? I guess most likely it might be a bio-terrorist attack of China, whose agents were under order to take revenge upon us for US active support of Tibet's riots and attempts of some Americans to boycott forthcoming Olympics in Beijing! Or maybe, it is God's revenge on George Bush and his native land, Texas, for his inadequate policy on the post of US President
And what is your estimate of it?
Or, it could just be an invasive species. See: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Paratrechina_species_near_pubens
Did you know that starlings are also a nonnative, invasive species?
Yeah, they are. Put here by those diabolical terrorist George III-loving Brits way back when. Yeah, a good 200 or whatever years before
I'm off to hide in my bomb shelter.
The invasion of the Rasberry crazy ants continues...:

Crazy ants of a hairy variety are finding their way into the southern United States, from Texas to Florida. These crazy ants, known for their swarming, can even shut down local industry.
