The lines have been drawn in
According to Scientific American, the Argentines have conquered native ants everywhere, except for those, if ever, in
Antarctica. Now, the Argentines stand to lose their turf
to the Asians.
The invading ants are only a few of the more than 12,040 species of ants in the world. Some of the ants are eco-friendly gardeners that till the soil and plant seeds. Invaders, on the other hand, are outright destroyers. Their sting can be lethal to humans.
The ants are so pervasive, they've gone into my mind. There are days when negative ants overwhelm the friendly ants of my thoughts, making me hyperventilate in allergic reaction.
Those are the days when I need candy the most.
