we are doomed !!!!!!!
we are doomed !!!!!!!
I see..... damn
From the page: "In Europe, one vast colony of Argentine ants is thought to stretch for 6,000km (3,700 miles) along the Mediterranean coast, while another in the US, known as the "Californian large", extends over 900km (560 miles) along the coast of California. A third huge colony exists on the west coast of Japan. "
Lets hope they're nowhere near Phase IV
Gee, didn't they ever read CITY by Clifford Simark? Don't want to spoil it for you but, guess who takes over the world? http://www.articlearchives.com/humanities-social-science/literature-literature/411845-1.html
Wow an ant megacolony! Who knew?
Both Ants and Bees fascinate me, Ants, I know
can be a nuisance but they are non-the-less
amazing creatures with how and what they do. I grew up with Bees and have a natural respect and love
for them. Both have high intelligence in the way
that they live, work and make a home and how hard
they work to keep their lives orderly and clean !!
Very interesting statistics about this variety of ant . . . their origins may be unknown, but their colony structures are seemingly peaceful. Protein! ;)
We welcome our new ant overlords!
""The enormous extent of this population is paralleled only by human society," the researchers write in the journal Insect Sociaux, in which they report their findings."
Well, if it's a fight they want, we'll give it to them. I don't think it should come to that, though. Most ants are nice enough people. Though many have a sweet tooth and may end up invoking the dreaded twinkie defense at some point, yeah?
First there was kudzu, then the African bee, and now its the Argentine ant.
These girls are becoming dominant along the northern Mediterranean, the coast of California and in Japan.
This article isn't yet talking in terms of an ecological disaster, but I bet these ants are going to present major problems in the future.
Our world is changing quickly.
Amazing, but thumbs-up for the scifi-sounding title too.
I'm sorry, but ants are just way cool!
Wow, that's amazing. There's no "taking over the world" though, I believe they're pretty harmless (aside from being annoying pests sometimes).
I've always loved ants so this story caught my attention.
Interesting article from the BBC on how a single mega-colony of ants has taken over the world | http://su.pr/23GotX
