Georgia Woman KILLED By Fire Ants!!

Filed under: Sad SadScary!Ants

This is just awful!!

65-year-old Jenny Pomeroy died after a severe allergic reaction to a painful fire ant sting!

Last week, at Pomeroy's Buckhead condo, she was sitting by her pool when a fire ant stung her!

She knew she was allergic but didn't have much time to react after being stung. She quickly went into anaphylactic shock.

That means her entire body had a serious allergic reaction!

She was rushed to the hospital but eventually died days later due to complications. So sad!

That's absolutely awful!! Our hearts and thoughts go out to her family and friends.

Check out the video (above) to find out a little more about this sad story.

It may be teeny-weeny, but this fly is pretty ruthless.

Named Euryplatea nanaknihali, the new fly was discovered in Thailand.

But don't even think about trying to see it with the naked eye; the fly is smaller than a grain of salt!

"Crazy Ants" Invade The Southern U.S.

Filed under: InsectsDisgusting!Danger!Crazzzzy

ants

"Crazy ants" are more than half the size but also more than twice the speed of a normal ant.

They come in gigantic swarms and live in walls and can cause some serious damage.

If they swarm on machinery, they can short circuit it, shutting it down.

The worst part is, when one dies, it releases a scent that tells other ants to attack, so the swarm gathers and gets even worse.

It's getting to the point where even something as large as a chemical plant in Texas is susceptible to ant problems.

An exterminator in Texas trying to deal with the ants said:

"We're kind of going for overkill on that particular site because so much is at stake. If that shuts down, they could literally shut down an entire chemical plant that costs millions of dollars."

And the swarming happens even if they're killed by pesticide. The exterminator said:

"I did a test site with a product early on and applied the product to a half-acre … In 30 days I had two inches of dead ants covering the entire half-acre.

It looked like the top of the dead ants was just total movement from all the live ants on top of the dead ants."

Gross.

Let's hope they stop it before the crazy ants spread anywhere else.
