Fire Ants pose a threat to the health and safety of your family, pets and livestock. Their painful stings can cause severe allergic reactions and a sting from the imported variety of fire ant can result in the formation of a white pustule. Children and the elderly are at the most risk of becoming severely ill from fire ant attacks since they may not be able to get away from the ants quickly enough. People who are sensitive to ant venom can become very ill and in rare occasions die, if not treated.
Fire Ant mounds can become so large that the mounds actually smother the grass underneath them and kill the roots. These nests can be as large as 3 feet across and 1 ½ feet tall. Infestations can make your back-yard uninhabitable.
