Fire ants, just the mention of the words makes me want scratch. Fire ants are one of nature's creatures that I can't for the life of me figure out why they are here. What is the purpose of the fire ant? They don't pollinate flowers or create soil or do anything useful. They just sting the crap out of you when you are mowing the yard.

Now comes this video, not only are these bad boys a flaming nuisance you can't hardly kill them! They won't drown as you can see. It just goes to show you how smart Mother Nature is. It's a good thing we have poisons and magnifying glasses to keep these painful pests at bay.
