Disturbing Fire Ant Mounds Documentary



Danger of disturbing a fire ants mound mini-documentary. It's not the big red imported fire ant mounds that will get you - those are obviously avoided - its the small fire ant colonies migrating to start a new colony that will catch people by surprise and put the bite on. These migrating ants are exceptionally aggressive and will bite like crazy. This often happens after a number of mounds are treated with poison bait and the survivors move to start new colonies. You just barely have to touch these new nest (not yet a mound) to gets hundreds of ants swarming almost immediately.
