STARKVILLE, Miss.—Mississippi State University researchers are continuing to study a “crazy” creature found in Mississippi’s coastal counties. The tawny crazy ant, also known as Nylanderia fulva, is a non-native ant species that has been found in the southern United States, including Hancock, Jackson and Harrison counties in Mississippi. The ants are not widely distributed on the Mississippi gulf coast, but their presence can be overwhelming in areas that contain a crazy ant population, according to MSU researchers who study and monitor the ants.

At least that’s what the school children of the state likely thought back in 1900 when they chose it over several other native flowers. However slow to act, the state’s legislature didn’t name the Magnolia the state flower of Mississippi until 1952.
