Fire ants are tiny little insects of evil that pose a huge problem here in the Carolinas. Being omnivorous, they’ll eat practically anything. They nest in moist areas like the soil, near river banks, creek beds, pond edges, and even watered lawns. They’re extremely adaptable to any environment, which makes them one of the most resilient bugs ever. These little red devils create colonies practically anywhere — tree stumps, cracks in masonry, under sheds, you name it. But a dead give away of a fire ant problem is the huge red mounds they’re known to build in otherwise beautiful yards. Those mounds are more than an eyesore — avoid them at all costs or you’ll know firsthand the pain of the fire ants’ sting. Nobody should experience this.
There’s really no such thing as a single fire ant sting. When a fire ant stings, it emits a pheromone that attracts other fire ants and triggers them to attack as well. It’s an amazing tactic in superhero movies, but not in real life. Each ant can deliver multiple stings and may delivermore than a dozen stings per minute. While the pain of fire ant stings is terrible in and of itself, about 1% of people are allergic to fire ant venom, which can result in serious complications like hives, nausea, diarrhea, and even anaphylactic shock.
