What is a turtle ant?

Turtle ants are large headed ants that use their large heads to close off the entrances to their nests. Thus the name reflects the ability to protect the ant colony by using their hard heads. Much the way a turtle protects itself with its thick skin… Yes, I know its called a turtle shell, but referencing thick skinned turtles and hard headed ants is much more entertaining. Of course it’s also cliche to note that the big headed ant uses its head like a jock uses his fists.

Arizona given $950,000 tax dollars to research Ants.

Recent reports from Senator Jon McCain on how tax paying dollars could be going to waste included a cool $950,000 given to the state of Arizona to research ants. The lucky ants are the turtle ant and the harvester ant. The money goes to ASU and U-of-A. Individuals argue that this money keeps scientist in Arizona which will be good for the recovering economy. Others complain that the ants are remaining employed while many in the state are not. A little further research reveals that the near million dollars supports a total of 3.5 jobs at the universities.

And yet the rasberry ant is causing major problems in Houston and south Texas. They short out stop lights, cause problems in water wells, displace local wild life, and shut down manufacturing plants. But oddly enough the University of Texas, who is currently doing research on the ever invasive Rasberry ant, doesn’t receive nearly the same amount to research this problematic Texas crazy ant…. and we call the ants crazy…

You will find fire ants nesting outside near a kitchen, bathroom, water source, in wood, soil, masonry, block walls, and base of trees or shrubs. The fire ant can gain access into a home or structure through HVAC systems, power in and outlets and pipes. Fire ants have been found to nest in breaker panels, electrical boxes, and water boxes.

A fire ants diet is high in protein but will feed on almost everything. The fire ant has been known for eating through electrical and phone lines seeking out the wire insulation and soiled clothing. Its possible that these ants could also cause fires. The red fire ant is highly aggressive by nature and has been known for attacking non-responsive residents and pets.
