Fire ants are abundant in the Southeast, where the hot, dry soil and rainy seasons provide everything necessary for them to thrive. Fire ants often set up colonies right next to building structures, with mounds that can reach up to 24″ high. They often get inside your home to forage for food.
Unlike other nuisance insects though, fire ants can pose a hazard because of their painful stings. The venom injected during stinging can be extremely dangerous to certain people, causing serious allergic reactions,including anaphylactic shock.
