They’re crazy!

December 10, 2013

The New York Times relates the discovery of Rasberry crazy ants (Nylanderia fulva), a relatively new invasive species in Texas. Until you see them, you will not fully appreciate why they are called crazy. They’re a problem in Houston. I have seen them in Austin. I haven’t yet seen them in the coastal bend. Alex Wild, an entomologist, points out that the article has unrealistic expectations regarding public science.
