Due to a mysterious cosmic event, ants have rapidly evolved with a hive mentality. A science team has been deployed to investigate various structures, all possessing a perfect geometric design, which the ants have built in the Arizona desert. While the human populace of the area has panicked, scientists Lesko and Hubbs set up a domed lab near where the ants are highly present. The ant colony, the scientific team, and a rural family, make war, with the ants being the primary threat; having developed chemical immunities and sabotaging the lab. Hubbs and Lesko start developing different methods for dealing with the ants; Lesko thinks that he could communicate via mathematical equations, Hubbs plans to destroy the central hive. After a toxic ant bite, Hubbs continues to make it into the hive and murder the queen. However, he soon falls into a ditch that seals his fate. Lesko realizes the danger that these ants pose and decides to continue Hubbs' plan, by poisoning the hive. However, his plans meet another, unforeseen obstacle.
