Fire Ants

Fire ants overview

Fire ants are small, aggressive ants. They're easy to recognize by their coppery-brown head and body and darker colored abdomen. Worker fire ants can vary from 1/8th of an inch to 1/4th of an inch in length and have a life span of about 1 month. Their colonies are large and can consist of up to 500,000 ants. Fire ants are most notorious for their stinging behavior. Unlike other small ants, this type of ant attacks, often by the hundreds, when their colony or food source is in jeopardy. A single fire ant can sting several times, leaving their victim covered in painful, red welts.
