Uh oh! The U.S. is being INVADED!
By 'crazy' ants!!
The Nylanderia fulva, or "tawny crazy ant," is a tiny little ant that can cause some pretty BIG problems!
They're originally from Argentina and Brazil, but they're making their way into the U.S. in places like Texas, Florida, Mississippi and Louisiana.
These crazy ants are even worse than red fire ants! They're actually eliminating the fire ant population! But that's not exactly a good thing…
'Crazy' ants eat everything from livestock to electronics!!
Hide yo laptop, hide yo iPhone cause crazy ants are coming!!
They once caused over $140,000,000 in damage to electrical equipment in Texas in one year!!
