Seems they release a pheromone when they are killed that attracts other crazy hairy ants, perhaps to avenge the death of their fellow.

[h=1]Hairy, crazy ants invade from Texas to Miss.[/h]
NEW ORLEANS (AP) — It sounds like a horror movie: Biting ants invade by the millions. A camper's metal walls bulge from the pressure of ants nesting behind them. A circle of poison stops them for only a day, and then a fresh horde shows up, bringing babies. Stand in the yard, and in seconds ants cover your shoes.

It's an extreme example of what can happen when the ants — which also can disable huge industrial plants — go unchecked. Controlling them can cost thousands of dollars. But the story is real, told by someone who's been studying ants for a decade.

Weeds and insects will be all that's left of our fair planet one day - thankfully, I'll be long gone.
