Houston infected with electronic-eating ants

Houston has been hit with a computer bug like no other: a swarm of ants that are eating through electronics. The “Crazy Raspberry Ants” are believed to have arrived in Texas aboard a cargo ship, and are causing widespread mayhem. For some unknown reason they are attracted to electrical equipment, which is causing problems for residents in the Deep South. The ants have destroyed PCs in homes and offices, ruined pumps at a sewage treatment plant and even taken a fancy to homeowners’ gas meters, according to reports from the Associated Press. “If you open a computer, you would find a cluster of ants on the motherboard and all over,” said Tom Raspberry, the owner of Budget Pest Control and the man the ants have been named after.

“You’d get 3,000 or 4,000 ants inside and they create arcs. They’ll wipe out any computer,” he told Computerworld. The Johnson Space Center has reportedly called in pest control experts to make sure the little critters don’t start chomping their way through NASA’s computer systems. Although, according to Raspberry, he’s already seen colonies on the NASA site. So what should worried PC owners be looking for? “They’re itty-bitty things about the size of fleas, and they’re just running everywhere,” Patsy Morphew of Pearland, told AP. “There’s just thousands and thousands of them. If you’ve seen a car racing, that’s how they are. They’re going fast, fast, fast. They’re crazy.”

    Its believed the ants got on cargo ships somewhere in Europe. In fact, the Europeans themselves placed the ants aboard the ships. Why? Because they are jealous of out superior economy and are trying to slow us down.

Not to mention we spend 25% of our national budget on military which no other country comes close to, simply to defend other peoples freedoms. Oh maybe you forgot.. if it wasn’t for us all you dumb euro’s would be speaking german by now. oh and btw atleast are leader has to balls to do something about the middle east. U.S. = greatest nation on earth. So yes you are jealous.

    I also think your debt is a concern, considering so many people cant pay their mortgage…but you are obviously still living with Mom and Dad, and they have not told you yet.

    how on earth do you arrive at “if it wasn’t for us all you dumb euro’s would be speaking german by now.”

    “we spend 25% of our national budget on military which no other country comes close to” – most other countries have more important things to spend money on. like healthcare and education. spending 25% of a national budget on the military is something any normal person would be ashamed of.

    The usa saved the world in the second war in europe? lol is your education system THAT bad.

    The russians are the primary reason the second war in europe ended – if anyone saved the euro’s it was the russians.

    “aryan” – do you even know what that word means. 80% of the usa as well as the european population is aryan you idiot.

    Europe is not a unified country you idiot, so how on earth is “their pm in bed with your president”. many nations don’t have a pm (they have presidents of their own). There is no “Euorpean PM” as you seem to think.

    “The power of your economy” – lol are you living 50years ago – the US economy is a mess, the world is about to stop trading in USD$ because it’s in such a state.

    Even the chinese laugh at the american economy now.

    please don’t be such a spastic, it makes americans look bad (and I know the vast majority of americans are nice people).

    @55 & @41 ,

    You’re both right, and You’re both idiots.

    America has more power than any country in the world, and we use it t convert and destroy anyone not like us.

    That is not good.

    It goes deeper than location, to religion.

    No specific religion, but religion in general is why Bush got elected… It was Blair’s excuse for not stepping up to Bush and saying no, and it is the ENTIRE reason there is conflict in the middle east.

    Before you blame one location, look at the big picture and what is really causing the problems. Americans are no better or worse than any other people.

    We have more power, but until we use it fairly and justly, we don’t deserve it.

Im one of the believers that Bush and Blair planned 9/11 to start a war. But a few bad seeds do not represent our great country I think were great becuz we have created things like South Park and NASCAR and Lone Star Beer.

    what is with all of the anti american sentiments in here honestly the article is about ants, wtf is everyones problem? who the fck cares about WW2, most of you weren’t even alive when it happened. Yes the US economy is crap at the moment. That proves nothing, there are always periods of lows and periods of highs, I mean honestly, what do you think the great depression was? The economy will bounce back, we will eventually get out of Iraq, and no one should say anything about education in the states, WE have the exact same education as everywhere else. Im an IB grad, so I know this is true. Stop hating on Americans, honestly we are the same as you. Americans hating on euro’s are dumb too, we are the same damn people.

    George Orwell must be rolling in his grave! No wonder conspiracy theories are becoming more popular, there either dead on or???

    All I see hear are jokes and ignorance. This is a WORLD WIDE concern. The War On Terror is a joke when the US leaves its borders and ports wide open. Hell, they tried to sell the ports not long ago. Something stinks with all this and I have serious concerns for the future of the US and mankind.

    Good luck to all!!

    to put things straight:

    The ONLY reason the US got involved with wwII was pearl harbour….after that they had to respond, and not let the nazis and their allies run amock like the first 3 years

    don’t kid yourself with noble intentions, there is only one motivator nowadays and its $$$$$ …corporations simply OWN politicians in the USA…hell your voting system isn’t even worth calling democratic…..imo belgium is the country where you come closest to the fantasy of democracy as there you HAVE to vote, don’t go vote and you get fined

    in the US it seems to me that if you vote for a candidate, you vote to give big power to their industrial buddies, oh, and screw the poor folk and throw people in jail for smoking a joint :P

    on topic now :
    I would LOVE to get my hands on some of those ants and drop em off at some of my former employers :P (I’ve worked in some of europe’s biggest datacenters 0_0)

    This is no joke, I live in south Texas, picked up my macbook pro and opened it to find an ant crawling across the screen. Thinking nothing of it, I squished it and went among my business. All of a sudden seconds later, a SWARM of them started flooding out of the vents, USB, screen, keyboard… everywhere, and they were all over the plug and mouse and inside the mouse.. It was a nightmare. I fought a battle for about 30 minutes cleaning them all out that day before leaving to school.

    Yeah we got billions of them here in europe,they actually improved my internet connection,seems we reached some kind of symbiosis.i let them munch on old motherboards and stuff i dont need and they make the right connections.i think its brilliant.
    maybe the ants that arrived to the land of god and fortune,got a bit dizzy from the long journey,and just started munching away without consulting the local community first!!
    just a theory!but i could ask my private colony,they respond pretty good to binarys by now,i think with a further development of out friendship we can reach big hights.
    sry for the americans who have to suffer from those
    ignorant ants from across the big pond.

    Hillarious and sad in one go.
    Great to see that there is a least talking (even if not serious) going on between the countries and there fellow country men.
    Every part of the world has it’s up and downsites.

    I honestly cannot understand how ppl can put trust in political systems, knowing that it all goes down the drain.

    Freedom, Democracy and Peace exsists only on the paper. There is no real freedom anymore, we are all bound to our work/life/enviromental circumstances. We are all held hostage by the economy. We bow down and say thanks when we get our a**es kicked again and again.

    On Topic: I think, lets pick the ants up and put them all over the place. Whats wrong with having no electronics ? Think about the upsite, when was the last time you read a book or actually finished a thought before going back to the usual (TV/Internet/Movies … you name it) ?
    We might all just come to our senses which is something you do not really have much time for in the “normal” life.

    just my 2 cents

    @131
    They dont eat the cables, components or whatnot, they go to the appliances for the heat source and then they short the whole thing and themselves in the process, defenitively they are crazy arc ants…could they be the next generation superconductor ?

    Anyone hear anything about prevention?

    May 17th, 2008 | 03:35

    This is scary. I wonder what kills them? In another article, it says they refuse to die after being sprayed with over-the-counter poison.. That means they’ve tried a buncha different bug sprays for these stubborn little viruses.. I hope they find a solution soon. I wonder if they’re simply a product of mother nature? You don’t really see other animals/insects having THAT much obsession with man-made things. Makes me think it’s genetically engineered, or…GASP…anyone here remember “Small Soldiers”? I bet if you crack open one of those ants’ head, you’ll see a tiny, tiny microchip………..

    One day, nano ants will arise…and we’ll all be doomed!

    May 17th, 2008 | 06:12

    They swarm the electronics because of the heat source ? … I don’t live in the us but isn’t Texas a warm place to begin with . Just seems strange behaviour why do they need the extra heat or do they just swarm the electronics at night ?

    I just don’t understand all the anti-US sentiments here. If you read the comments from beginning to end, it wasn’t someone from the US that started this sh!t. It was some Euro-douchebag that made a completely off-topic comment. something about the US “stepping on someones toes” or something of that nature. WTF is your problem with us? The middle-east has been at war for 1000 years. -with eachother. Muslims killing Muslims/Jews. etc etc. Don’t want your “toes stepped on”? The US has always tried to help the other UN countries and always, gets blasted in the end. I personally think the US should drop out of the UN, Seal it’s borders, and ship each country in the middle-east a nuke or two. Then let them go at it. Then those idiots can kill eachother permanently. I’d call it “Operation: Blown-Glass” A few nukes apiece for those warring idiots, and they’d turn that desert into glass. I don’t think we should be over there, and I don’t think it’s any of our concern if they want to terrorize eachother and war constantly, that’s their prerogative.
