Rasberry Crazy Ant Workshop

Last week I had the opportunity to participate in a day-long workshop on the so-called Rasberry crazy ant. Sponsored by the AgriLife Extension Service and held in the small town of West Columbia, TX, it attracted about 50 extension specialists, regulatory officials, Fish and Wildlife Department officials and community representatives. Rather than report in writing I thought I would try my hand at a video report, since still pictures and descriptions seem inadequate to convey a feel for what this ant does and is.

For more information about this ant and what we can recommend about its control, check out the site sponsored by the Center for Urban and Structural Entomology's site at
