In a Discovery Channel documentary, an African tribe are plagued by termites and decide to introduce a species of ant to combat the problem and things go awry.
Or at least that would be the blurb for the show if it wasn't so clearly staged - at least to some degree. As far as I'm concerned the documentary-makers suggested the species knowing full well what would happen. If you can stomach that then the MTV-style editing will irritate you too for good measure.
Try to fight something by adding a foreign species is a very bad idea. Just ask Australia. :) Nanotechnology termites sounds very interesting. I will try to look that article up. By the way if you are interested in nanotechnology, you should try <SPAM removed by QI Mod>. You can find a lot of very interesting info there.
