Post A Virus Could Help Control Fire Ants

Researchers have pinpointed a naturally occurring virus that kills the ants, which arrived in the U.S. in the 1930s and now cause $6 billion in damage annually nationwide, including about $1.2 billion in Texas.

I hate them too. Last year alone at the Bell house they got in the generator and did their nasty deed. Electrician repair bill for that. Then they got in the electrical wiring for the septic system. Bill for that. They got in the housing to the electric gate to our driveway. Bill for that. A mouse fried himself on the wiring for the well. Bill for that.

I hate critters!!!But especially the ants.

We had a small swarm of bees trying to build a hive in an eletrical box out by our house. I discovered it yesterday. I would say we need some kind of virus for them too, but I hear we already have one.

Yeah, call out a bee keeper. Bees are having major problems. Lots of them dying off for no apparent reason. It has been said that if all the bees die all the people will die in a few years due to lack of food.

But U hate those ants. I can't seem to get rid of them. Hope my ant poison is not killing the bees.
