Fire ant bites?

February 17, 2014

Just douse yourself thoroughly in formic acid. It works for Rasberry (please, not tawny) crazy ants. At least, so long as some pesky UT entomologist hasn’t painted their acidopore shut. And it somewhat explains why they’re prevailing against Solenopsis invicta. I love this kind of low-theory research done with nail polish.
