This is a picture of the Brazos river not far from my house. Notice the brown "debris" in the lower center?

I've seen similar "logs" of the vermin in some photos from Houston. That seems like a good opportunity to eradicate a bunch of them at one 'floating'?

Looks like a good target for a flamethrower.

Imported Red Fireants are an invasive species that originated in South America, forming rafts and floating with the water is how they survived in the Amazon region

Red Firearms?? I have black and FDE but no read. I'll have to look into that, you know, for my show-y side.

We need the national command authority to approve a tactical nuke strike on that location. I believe it is justified.

I'll give credit to the Rasberry 'Crazy Ants'. They chased all the fire ants off of my place. Course they present their own problems, but they're not fire ants.

So far in this thread we have "red" firearms, and "read" ones. I have neither :biggrinjester: Mods: remove the useless "Preview" button on the Post a Reply page, as it appears that no one uses it. :mrgreen:
