Billions of electronic-eating ants invade Texas It sounds like the plot of a farfetched science fiction movie. Unfortunately for the residents of Texas, it is very much a reality: billions of tiny reddish-brown ants have arrived onshore from a cargo ship and are hell-bent on eating anything electronic. Computers, burglar alarm systems, gas and electricity meters, iPods, telephone exchanges – all are considered food by the flea-sized ants, for reasons that have left scientists baffled. Having ruined pumps at a sewage facility, the ants are now marching towards Nasa’s Johnson Space Center and William P. Hobby airport, Houston, putting state officials in a panic. "They’re itty-bitty things, and they’re just running everywhere," said Patsy Morphew, a resident of Pearland, on the Gulf Coast. .
