"Computers, burglar alarm systems, gas and electricity meters, iPods, telephone exchanges all are considered food by the flea-sized ants, for reasons that have left scientists baffled."
"Perhaps their most remarkable characteristic, however, is that they are attracted to electrical equipment. Pest control specialists say that they are inundated with calls from homes and businesses now that the warm, humid season has begun, with literally billions of the ants wreaking havoc across the state. Worse, the ants refuse to die when sprayed with over-the-counter poison. Even killing the queen of a colony doesnt do any good, because each colony has multiple queens."
Sounds like the ultimate weapon.. deliver a rogue ship to an enemy country.. let the little critters invade and wipe out their infrastructure.
Food for thought... or more likely... this has given the shady outfits an idea to develop.
Ahh the benefits of a cold.. wet.. miserable country are becoming clear now.
