Major news alert: ants seem to be extremely susceptible to zombification! For humans, the possible causes have always included (but are not limited to) viral infection, radiation, voodoo, damnation and more.
Ants on the other hand must beware of fungus and flies so say MSNBC, National Geographic, and a host of other credible sources.
Are we adequately prepared for a “bird flu” / “swine flu” orginating with fungus or flies. We cannot assume the CDC is on the ball here, people!
