Linepithema humile
Argentine ants (Linepithema humile) are taking over much of southern California, wiping out native ants and other organisms. These brilliant fighters are currently staging the largest battles ever recorded, with millions of ant deaths annually along territorial borders that extend for miles through the suburbs of San Diego.
