Yellow Crazy Ants Invade Australian Town

Labeled “tramp ant” and among the 100 most invasive species, the yellow crazy ant has been identified in Lismore, New South Wales. They earned the moniker “crazy” for the darting movements they make. Yellow crazies don’t bite, they spray formic acid at their prey or foe that can blind and burn the skin. Known for joining colonies together, the yellow crazy ants can quickly form super colonies and will destroy local flora and fauna of the areas they invade. More

An ant fanatic in Canada did a video of joining two new yellow crazy ant colonies together. Watch

If you come across these yellow pest at your Memorial Day picnic this weekend, don’t just roast them with a magnifying glass, call an exterminator.
