Can Houston Exterminators get rid of raspberry ants?

Per a local new station, “Raspberry ants are uncontrollable.” The ants invade by the thousands. Treating yourself may provide temporary relief, but they keep coming back. One man reports that he sprays and every night he finds thousands of more dead ants. They just keep coming. They are attracted to your water supply, sugar, and climate controlled shelter. If they get in they will quickly multiply producing thousands of more ants every day. As they spread, they leave pheromones that attract more of their kind. Yes, its not a pretty sight and yes they are difficult to get rid of.
