Well it is the beginning of a new season. Rasberry Crazy Ants will start building there numbers very soon. I hope everyone is ready. We are ramping up at our company for all of the new outbreaks.
Last year Texas A&M did some research on RCA's ability to vector pathogens and found that the do in fact are vector of pathogens. This is not good news for the health care industry.
We are starting a new research project this month, however I don't believe there will be any profound information will come from this project.
TDA has clasified RCAs as agriculural pest however they have not been inforcing the laws that are associated with these findings. TDA and USDA are still more concerned with fighting over the name than doing anything about helping the situation.
GOOD LUCK AND HAVE A GREAT SPRING
