    I think the answer may be, in part, the introduction of phorid flies. Although total control cannot be achieved, established populations of phorid flies that are natural predators of red fire ants in South America have had an impact on populations in Texas. Most of the phorid fly introductions occurred in the early 2000s and populations were established over a good portion of the state before 2010. The same species were also introduced in the SE states, including Alabama.

    What's the science behind setting ants on fire?

    I didn't know ants were set on fire. Since they are underground it would be kind if pointless. There are fire ants which are hateful and painful but never heard of ants being set on fire.

    Could one person stomp on a complete nest of fire ants?

    I’m betting that someone could do so… once.

    And after stomping once on the nest, they’d likely learn why those ants are called fire ants.

    I don’t think someone could *eradicate* a whole fire ant nest successfully by stomping on it, not least because the tunnels go a lot deeper than you can reach without a shovel.

    How do fire ants coordinate their attacks?

    Ants use a set of tactile and chemical signals to each other. While the behavior of an individual ant is somewhat simple, like a neuron in the brain, the simple interactions add up to what computer people call distributed computing; the simple interactions add up into more complex behavior for the entire colony the way [relatively] simple neurons give us complex behavior.

    Introduction To Biology

    **From 1930 to 1939 fire ants spread inland about 60 miles from their point of introduction in Mobile, Alabama. What was the cause of their spread over this distance

    a natural spread

    **From 1940 to 1970 fire ants spread through many southern states, sometimes at a rate of 100 miles in a year. What was the cause of their spread over this distance?

    being transported along with plants and soil

    **In 1958 federal law restricted the movement of soil and plants from areas where fire ants were established. Why was this law unsuccessful in stopping the spread of fire ant colonies?

    People were unaware of the federal law and, when they moved, transported plants bearing fire ant colonies; a single mated queen can be transported without being noticed; and many states thought to be free of fire ant colonies already had them.

    **Techniques used, or are being considered for use, in controlling the spread of fire ants include _____.

    setting baits that kill the queen when they are carried back to the nest, applying chemical powders that kill the colony, introducing a protist to infect the fire ant queen and her eggs, and introducing a fly that lays eggs in fire ants so that the eggs will hatch into larvae that eat their way into the ants' heads, which will then fall off

    **What are the two major factors determining the distribution of terrestrial biomes?

    temperature and rainfall

    **Which of these biomes is characterized by little rainfall?

    desert

    estuary

    **Which of the following statements about aquatic biomes are true?

    1. A freshwater organism permanently attached to the substrate would be unlikely to survive and reproduce in an estuary.

    2. Temperature drives water movement in some lakes. 3. Wetlands have slow water movement or no water movement and no turnover. 4. Estuaries are very productive and are used as breeding grounds by many species of fish. 5.Tropical coral reefs generally exist in relatively shallow areas of the ocean.

    **Which phrase best summarizes the relationships in the concept map?

    Natural selection acts on organisms, but evolution occurs in populations.

    **A community has a different meaning in biology than in everyday use. Which of the following represents a biological community?

    The humans, cats, dogs, chickens, mosquitoes, rose bushes, and other organisms living together in a town

    **Like the levels of biological organization, the tree of life is itself a hierarchical structure. Which list best demonstrates this?

    tree of life, domains, phyla, genera, species

    **If you were to add a "Darwin and Wallace" box to the map, where would you connect it?
