I know, this isn't a pretty photo!!! Fire Ants are aggressive, vicious little ants. They get on you without you knowing it then they begin to bite and you feel like the bites are on fire. I try to avoid them but like the photo above shows, I don't always succeed.
Wikipedia's description of fire ants is:
Fire ants are aggressive stinging ants found most commonly in the southern United States. Almost everyone experiences some sort of reaction to a fire ant sting, the most common of which is a sterile pustule at the site of the sting. A large percentage of people experience a large amount of swelling, redness and itching around the site of the sting (these are called large local reactions). About 1% of people can experience severe allergic reactions, such as anaphylaxis, as a result of a fire ant sting.
