Beware the Bite of Fire Ants

Fire Ants

Fire ants often attack small animals and can kill them. Unlike many other species of ants, fire ants bite to get a grip on their prey and then sting, injecting a toxic venom. For humans, their strike usually only causes a painful sensation, but the after-effects can be deadly to particularly sensitive people.

Resilient, fire ants can survive floods and cold temperatures. They prefer to nest in soil near moist areas, including watered lawns and ponds. Usually, the fire ant nest is hidden under logs, rocks or bricks. If one queen survives, within a month the colony can build up to thousands of fiery fire ants.
