By the way, should I name them Flaming Salsa, Burning Empire, or the Blazing empire? (Sorry for bad fiery names lol)
I think the Flaming salsa isn't a bad name. It's personally my favorite! :D

Re: New Red Imported Fire Ant (RIFA) Colony

I have some good news and bad news. The colony in the out world is most likely dead. The good news is not all of them are dead i noticed a worker roaming around probably looking for food.
