The Billion Ant Mega Colony and the Biggest War on Earth

    Kurzgesagt – In a Nutshell

    In nearly every corner of the Earth, ants wage war against each other. Their weapons are what nature gave them. Some have strong armour, deadly stingers or sharp mandibles. And then there is this tiny, and not very impressive ant. But it rules the biggest empire any ant has ever built. A colony spanning continents and fighting wars that leave millions of casualties. Let’s take a look at this unlikely warrioress: Linepithema humile, the Argentine ant.

Believe that all you want to, but in areas with heavy argentine ant infestations, you won't see fire ant mounds. And the argentines expand their territory a little more every year. Including here in central alabama.
