I have an infestation problem with Harvester Ants (100% positive they're Harvesters) and was thinking a Horned Lizard may be a good natural way to control the ants. These are very large ant colony's so a healthy food supply is not an issue.

I was wondering what experienced HL owners thought of the idea of getting a couple of HLs to turn loose in the wild for this purpose. And what issues might I need to be aware of; such as types of protection from natural predators would they need? And if I got more than one are they territorial and will they drive each other away or are breeding pairs available? I'm in Southern Colorado, if that's an issue.

Thoughts?

Thank you
