Jeez, erst Würmer, die sich zu Superorganismen zusammenschließen und wie Aliens aussehen, jetzt eine Ameisenkolonie, die sich über die ganze Erde ausgebreitet hat. Eine einzige Kolonie. Wer den (hervorragenden) Film von Saul Bass, Phase IV, kennt, weiß, was zu tun ist: Obey your fucking Ameisen-Overlord.

A single mega-colony of ants has colonised much of the world, scientists have discovered.

Argentine ants living in vast numbers across Europe, the US and Japan belong to the same interrelated colony, and will refuse to fight one another.

The colony may be the largest of its type ever known for any insect species, and could rival humans in the scale of its world domination. [...]

These introduced Argentine ants are renowned for forming large colonies, and for becoming a significant pest, attacking native animals and crops.

In Europe, one vast colony of Argentine ants is thought to stretch for 6,000km (375 miles) [Red.: eher 600km, nach meiner Rechnung] along the Mediterranean coast, while another in the US, known as the 'Californian large', extends over 900km along the coast of California. A third huge colony exists on the west coast of Japan.
