If you can catch about 100 red fire ants that live in southwestern desert and also about 100 of those large black ants that live there and drop them all into the same jar, not much will happen ... until you shake the jar vigorously and dump them on the ground.
The red ants will attack the black ants and the black ants will attack the red ants and they'll devastate each other.
The thing is, the red ants think the enemy is the black ants and the black ants think the enemy is the red ants and all those ants put together never do figure out that the real enemy is the guy who shook the jar.
Makes me glad we don't try to stir up every ant's nest we see in Australia.
Be nice if more people realized that their jar was being shook.
