'Crazy rasberry ants' target Texan tech

Silver badge

Odd name

Are you sure they aren't known to science as an as-yet unnamed species in the genus _Paratrenchia_ that is near to _Paratrenchia pubens_, which may yet get named _Paratrenchia rasberiensis_ if the entomologist who established it as a distinct species does not want the honor?

Also, from news items in local Texas papers, apparently Rasbery is indeed the exterminator's surname.
