Fly By

This week's Dave Barry column (or last week's, depending on where you live) was a humourous take on his encounters with imported red fire ants (Solenopsis invicta). Dave recently met with researchers in Florida that are working with the decapitating phorid fly (Pseudacteon tricuspis), a biocontrol agent that uses the ants as incubators (and food) for its offspring. Don't forget to read the cute related comic in the top right corner of the page.
