Not sure if you guys saw this, but the USDA recently deregulated 4 other ant species including Atta mexicana. Here’s the link.

When I saw Atta mexicana I knew it wasn't true. Besides, someone else would have brought it up way earlier.

Hah, good one. Since April fools day is over now, I'm adding something to the title to keep from spreading misinformation. Please don't change it.
