Fire ants are small, red or black ants that sting when provoked. The sting from these little pests can be painful and itchy. Fire Ants are not native to North America. These insects were brought from South America by Spanish explorers.

How do you know if you have Fire Ants in your lawn? Fire Ants build mounds for their colonies to live in. You may have noticed little mounds of loose dirt with a hole in the center; these are most likely Fire Ants. You will also know if you’ve been stung a few times 😉
