About Red Imported Fire Ants
Red imported fire ants (Solenopsis invicta) are capable of causing great pain to children and adults when they bite or sting, and they are just as harmful to your household pets.
They build nests outdoors in mounds of soil and live beneath them in an elaborate network of underground tunnels. When their mounds are disturbed, hundreds of ants will swarm out of the ground and aggressively sting the intruder within seconds.
How Fire Ants Can Harm Your Pets
Fire ants have been known to sting, and even kill, small animals and pets, particularly very young animals, caged animals, and those that are old and unable to move out of harm’s way.
The ants are also attracted to weak animals with wounds or open sores, and will readily sting the abdomen, legs, and areas of its body that have little or no hair, such as the eyes, nose, ears and muzzle.
People and animals alike may be allergic to the venom in the fire ant sting and may experience swelling at the sting site as well as itching and redness. It’s also possible for anaphylactic shock to occur (in people and pets), requiring quick attention to prevent a deadly outcome.
The key to controlling these troublemakers is to identify them quickly and take action to minimize the damage they can cause.
