When animals swarm they create a super-organism of incredible power. They can attack our food supplies, immobilise our transport systems, undermine our cities and even attack our energy supplies. They can stop us in our tracks. Using state-of-the-art photography, Superswarms reveals the collective intelligence behind the animal invasions, and how man fights back.

    Nature was created in complete harmony and order. If no humans' invented chemicals had been interfered with the nature, wouldn't have had any issues that some organizations and goverments spending time and money to replace with. Some are very greedy and off the rail.

    When called to arms a soldier may, kneel to supplicate his gods and pray,
    For courage and cunning to win the day,
    But for the ant there's another way.
    The ant knows not of orders given,
    But by pheromones is mightily driven,
    A life to be given for the mighty whole,
    To sacrifice the mote - of her soul,
    There are no gods to whom she prays
    Just instinct and loyalty to the end of her days.

    The best way to deal with these pests is get with the times and stop being a third world country. Isn't there like large parts of Africa that are extremely wealthy, like Princes and such. If they cared about their nation's poverty and third world status you'd think they would share some of their wealth and provide actually technologies and help form a more modern Africa in the more traditionally 20th century areas! ._.
