Fire ants DO like getting into 'electrical areas' of where there is cabling, etc. It was one reason the proposed Texas Supercollider was abandoned (per my friend's Dad, a geologist on the project) and a link to an article about it.

I grew up just north of Houston, and can remember fire ants getting into AC units and other outdoor electrical sites. They love those places, IME, though that was 35-40+ yrs ago. Just saying....

No idea on population increase/decrease, however
