Fire ants and their telltale mound nests should be actively avoided. Interfering with a fire ant nest can cause them to sting, resulting in painful welts. To prevent red ants from entering a structure, seal all internal and external cracks and crevices.
Unlike many other ants, which bite and then spray acid on the wound, fire ants only bite to get a grip and then sting (from the abdomen) and inject a toxic alkaloid venom (piperidine).
For humans, this is a painful sting, which leaves a sensation similar to what one feels when they get burned by fire – hence the name fire ant – and the aftereffects of the sting can be deadly to sensitive individuals.
