    There is a new ant that is eating fire ants. The Crazy Harry Ant will even take out AC units and may be worse that what they replace. Just now getting them in Florida.

    They are officially called raspberry ants after the man who founded them, also Caribbean ants. I have them bad, all in my plants and even a few in my house. Pest control man told me nothing stops them unless you spray every one of them. They do not carry poison to nest.
