Keep Your Pets Safe
Red imported fire ants (Solenopsis invicta) are known for their ability to cause great pain to adults and children when they bite or sting. They can be just as dangerous to your household pets.
According to veterinarians, small animals and pets are treated more often than any other type of animal for fire ant related injuries.
While most pets will leave fire ant mounds alone, playing or digging near the colonies may result in them being attacked by thousands of aggravated, stinging ants. Depending on the severity of the stings, treatment by a veterinarian may be necessary for allergic reactions, respiratory failure and worse.
Fire ants are particularly drawn to young animals, caged animals, and old, weak animals that are unable to move out of harm’s way. They will eagerly sting the abdomen and areas of the animal’s body that have little or no hair to protect them, such as the eyes, ears, nose and muzzle. They are also attracted to the nutrients in many types of animal feed, such as dry dog food and livestock feed.
If your pet is attacked, get it away from the source of the fire ants. Remove all ants from its body and try to avoid getting stung yourself. Spraying the pet with water won’t work, and slapping at the ants will just aggravate them, causing them to hold on tight and sting more viciously. If the attack is severe, you may need to visit a veterinarian to treat the stings and pustules or blisters that develop.
