Fire(wall) ants?

Ants swarm over Houston area, fouling electronics - Yahoo! News

[[{"type":"media","view_mode":"media_large","fid":"94","attributes":{"class":"media-image","typeof":"foaf:Image","style":"","alt":"exotic_ant.jpg"}}]]I guess fire ants aren't bad enough. Apparently, we now have a new type of ant in our area. According to the article, they've been around since 2002, but this is the first I've heard of them. They're called "Crazy Rasberry Ants" believe it or not.

They eat fire ants (good), they don't sting (good), but they do bite (bad) and they apparently like to munch on electronics (very bad) and are resistant to most anti-ant technology.

Now all we need is some radiation to turn them six stories tall, and we'll have a perfect 50's sci-fi 'B' movie. 3-D glasses, anyone?
