Synopsis by Cecilia Cygnar
Part of the In Search Of series, this documentary takes a close look at killer ants. These so-called fire ants are said to be able to kill animals and humans by injecting poison into their victims. These ants can kill their prey when they attack in large numbers and when the victim cannot get medical treatment immediately. This video examines where these ants come from, what their daily life is like, how they find their victims, how hospitals treat patients with these ant bites, and how to prevent these deadly ants from harming you. This documentary also looks at how farmers can prevent these ants from harming or killing their animals.
