I have heard about these crazy ants! Never want to encounter a bunch of those!

It could be much worse. Let's hope someone doesn't get the bright idea to import these.

My mom's house had a ladybug problem. When I was researching control methods I learned that wherever they congregate, they deposit a pheremone (kind of a bug perfume) that tends to attract more ladybugs. The more ladybugs attracted, the more pheremone deposited, and in a few years they can be thicker than hairs on a dog's back.

We got rid of the problem. Sold the house.

Like I said before, have had 99% success with the arisol bombs in the attic and a couple times in the main house. These buggers like to hid in cracks and crannies and come out when the temp warms up. Use the vacumn cleaner when they group up and the bombs in the Spring and Fall. After 2 or 3 years of doing this, our outbreaks are fewer and just a few bugs in the house.
