HOUSTON puma suede heart satin femme pas cher , Aug. 30 (Xinhua) -- Floating colonies of fire ants are posing another threat to Houston residents who are still reeling from the catastrophic flooding left behind by Hurricane Harvey.

These venomous ants have water-repellant waxy bodies, and they link together to form a mass that may contain as many as 100,000 as they look for a dry place to survive the floods and rebuild their home.

Entomologists said such behavior of fire ants is totally normal, but an unwanted encounter with these tiny creatures may lead to life-threatening allergic reactions depending on the severity of stings.

Most people just feel a burning sensation and are left with a red patch of skin puma suede heart satin pas cher , but an allergic reaction can trigger anaphylactic shock, which can include welts and trouble breathing, entomologists warned.

Experts strongly advised people not to disturb or mess with these fire ants.

Once the first few ants sting, they would emit a kind of substance called "pheromone" to inform other ants to follow suit puma suede heart reset bleu pas cher , experts said, noting that the best thing to do is to rub them off as quickly as possible.

"They don't come to attack you. They're just passively floating along. It's a matter of being just intelligent and evasive," Larry Gilbert, a professor of integrated biology at the University of Texas at Austin puma suede heart reset bleu , told technology news website The Verge.

If it's impossible to avoid the path of fire ants, entomologist Molly Keck suggested creating waves to move them a few inches away.

Experts noted that the rusty color of fire ants make it easy for people to spot and take precautions.

There have been no public reports of flood victims suffering fire ant attacks as of midday Tuesday, according to NBC News.

Former British Olympian Sebastian Coe was elected the new president of the world athletics governing body on Wednesday puma suede heart reset femme pas cher , beating former Ukrainian Olympic pole vaulter Sergey Bubka at the 50th IAAF (International Association of Athletics Federations) Congress in Beijing.

The IAAF is facing a growing crisis over doping after British newspaper The Sunday Times and German broadcaster ARDWDR reported that the IAAF had failed to follow up on suspicious blood tests involving over 5,000 athletes -between 2001 and 2012. Last week, the IAAF temporarily suspended 28 -athletes who competed at the 2005 and 2007 worlds after their retested samples showing ""adverse findings.""

Coe, 58 puma suede heart reset pas cher , vowed ""zero tolerance"" to doping abuses and wants to establish a fully independent anti-doping agency.

""There is zero tolerance to doping abuses in my sport, and I maintain that to the very highest level of vigilance,"" Coe told a news conference after being elected.

He then shrugged off skepticism over the current anti-doping team, saying ""they are the best at what they do.""

""I have espoused the concept of an independent testing process. That isn't in any way to question the technical or professional ability of our teams in -Monaco.""

But he also said that changes cannot happen at once.

""I would not have thrown by hat into the ring if I felt that I would be shortchanging this organization puma basket heart patent femme blanche pas cher ,"" said Coe.

""I don't want the thought that trust and integrity are only something rooted in challenges around doping in sports or doping in track and field. There is a universal problem with that in sports and we recognize that, and we have been -taking the lead for as long as I've been in the sport,"" Coe adde.
