They seem as bad as ever here in central Texas (at least as far as I can tell). I have mounds popping up in my yard constantly. We used to have a lot more bugs in general than we do now, which as i understand it, is attributable to the fire ants. I've also heard that the decrease in horny toads (which used to be everywhere) and quail are tied to the fire ants. On the plus side, we used to have ridiculous amounts of chiggers and I don't think I've been bitten in the last 15 years.
