New ants eat small chickens

May 15 2008

So now we have these new-fangled “crazy ants”… wonderful. 😐

The good news? They eat fire ants, the stinging red terrors of Texas summers.

But the ants also like to suck the sweet juices from plants, feed on such beneficial insects as ladybugs, and eat the hatchlings of a small, endangered type of grouse known as the Attwater prairie chicken.
