That's not good.

This part is really interesting: "This may be due to the fact that they’re willing to cooperate with other species and bring them into their huge colonies, the study said — while native ants tend to reject outsiders." 'Survival of the fittest' is pretty subtle and sophisticated -- it isn't all just "kill them and take their food".
