The Origin of Imported Red Fire Ants in the US
Imported Red Fire Ants aren’t native to the United States. They migrated from South America, entering the US in the 1930s. Being an invasive species, they don’t have enemies in nature that control their population. They tend to win in the competition for resources and will nest practically anywhere that is moist and warm, making your home as likely to face infestation as your garden or pets’ pens.
Fire ants live in complex networks of tunnels below ground commonly referred to as colonies. The vast majority of the ants live in the colony while the visible portion of the habitat that is above ground is the mound. The mound guards the colony and provides an entrance and exit for the population.
When rains come, these ants create a ball by surrounding the queen with their own bodies, protecting her as they float toward a dry area. This protective, instinctive measure is why you’ll often see new mounds sprout up near trees, posts, houses, and other elevated areas after a rain.
