What could possibly go wrong?

H/T to Uncle;

Sounds like a movie script. Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service have brought in a South American fly to Texas. It purpose you ask? To lay eggs in fire ants that then eat their brain and leave them walking around zombie-like for up to 2 weeks.

University study to control fire ants, by introducing a parasite that eats brains.


What's the worst that could happen?

I'm going to go ahead and build some of those black rifles. Just sayin'.

I think I read about these flys. It seems that ants can recognize them flying around, and will run away. This means that they do not get their ant business done, and tend to starve.
