Pest Control For Ants Riverside CA 92504
Fire ants are very aggressive and when their nest is disturbed, they will sting in several times. In the southern states, fire ants can also be deadly, especially for children and unhealthy adults.
Fire ants, also known as ginger ants or red ants, are a type of stinging ant that can be found nesting in the soil near moist areas such as rivers, ponds, and watered lawns. While many ants can cause irritation by spraying acid, they also inject alkaloid venom with their sting. They bite in order to get a grip so that they can then use their venom-injecting sting against their prey. The venom is toxic, and can even be fatal for particularly sensitive people or those with allergies. As with many allergies, the venom can cause anaphylaxis, which requires immediate, emergency treatment. Other symptoms of the toxic venom are localized to the site of the sting and include painful swelling, red bumps, and pustules which can become infected.
