Ants Threaten NASA

Crazy ants

From Lonelocust.

Worse, they, like some other species of ants, are attracted to electrical equipment, for reasons that are not well understood by scientists.

They have ruined pumps at sewage pumping stations, fouled computers and at least one homeowner’s gas meter, and caused fire alarms to malfunction. They have been spotted at NASA’s Johnson Space Center and close to Hobby Airport, though they haven’t caused any major problems there yet.

You can insert your own ant overlord Simpsons reference here is you would like.

  1. Ants are easy to keep away from any food sprinkles with instant grits powder because 2 reasons one of which is its a fine particle partly that clogs insect breathing and the other is to gruesome to describe. Just put the powder on a dry surface like at a door bottom and within a couple of day no more ants species that eat carbohydrates. Meat eater only ants maybe another problem.
