HOUSTON, Texas — Billions of voracious ants are about to arrive in Houston, Texas, according to Fox News.

According to reports, the “Raspberry Crazy Ants” are cousins of fire ants.

Once they invade a home, they chew through electrical systems and insulation, according to Fox News, along with laptops, water pumps and gas meters.
