Solenopsis invicta & Linepithema humile
The two most invasive and aggressive ant species in North America originally come from the same region in Argentina. The fire ant (Solenopsis invicta) readies her poison-laced stinger as she fights with an Argentine ant (Linepithema humile) over a dead grasshopper. Photo © Mark W. Moffett/Minden Pictures
