Do Thief Ants Bite?

Like fire ants, thief ants have stingers, but due to their small size, thief ants’ stingers aren’t strong enough to pierce human skin or powerful enough to cause harm to humans. The most sensitive people, however could possibly, though not likely, get stung by an army of thief ants in a potato chip or other greasy snack food bag or while taking out a trash bag infested with thief ants.

While sensitivity to insects is most commonly seen in anaphylactic reactions caused by bee, wasp and stinging ants, some anaphylactic reactions may also be triggered by mosquitoes, kissing bugs and ticks—and possibly thief ants. If you have a stinging or biting insect allergy, prevention is always better than the cure. It’s advisable to Take precautions to prevent insect allergies from ruining your day. But because some encounters with insects can’t be avoided, an excellent rule of thumb for the extremely sensitive is to carry emergency Epi-pen injectors at all times.

  • When going outside, try to avoid wearing bright colors in your clothing and shoe choices
  • Stay away from strong, sweet-smelling lotions, perfumes and shampoos on outdoor adventures
  • Always wear shoes outdoors
  • Keep snacks and meal containers tightly sealed
  • Make sure trash containers are tightly sealed and secured
  • When your outdoor activities include hiking or gardening, wear long pants and long-sleeved shirts
