I suppose I dislike gnats more than any other creature on this planet, but fire ants rank a close second. HOWEVER, I have been noticing something lately that has me wondering if those fire ants may not be helping me out a little. I am seeing where these guys are apparently hunting for prey in my sticker stacks. I saw older logs most of the time. For the most part, I can get some pretty sound lumber out of them, but there may be some worm holes. It seems these fire ants are going into these worm holes and feasting on the larvae inside. If I understand ant biology, these ants don't eat wood. SO, I can only assume that they are eating the grubs. I have actually seen a few borers that the ants seem to have killed. Anybody else seen this?
If they do eat wood, I suppose I have yet another reason to dislike them.
