Fire Ants: Texas Border Massacre
Deep in the heart of Texas, fearsome invaders ravage the land, maim the animals, and attack people. Nothing seems to stop them. They're everywhere and they get into everything. In one south Texas town, the residents search for a way to counterattack. A bizarre experiment could hold the key to stopping the alien invasion. The enemy: a species of red fire ant that invaded the U.S. 70 years ago. Their best defense: a tiny fly with a devastating attraction to the ants.
