Now that temperatures are rising, Houston area residents are bracing for a possible advance of tawny crazy ants, also referred to as Rasberry ants, in the coming weeks, Fox News reports.

The hairy, reddish-brown ant is named after Rasberry because he was the first one to spot the insect in a Houston suburb in 2002.  The ant, also known as the Tawny Crazy Ant, is even known to fight the fierce-stinging fire ant, another Texas scourge.

The article noted the ants have expanded their presence to 27 counties from just eight.
