Ants won't die!

This is getting weird - ants that won't die!

An exterminator said the ants are getting easier and easier to find, but are impossible to get rid of.

Crazy Rasberry ants eat fire ants and like to suck the sweet juices from plants, feed on such beneficial insects as ladybugs, and eat the hatchlings of a small, endangered type of grouse known as the Attwater prairie chicken.

They also bite humans, though not with a stinger like fire ants.

The Texas Department of Agriculture is working with A&M researchers and the Environmental Protection Agency on how to stop the ants.
