Fire Ant Attacks; Bites or Stings

A-Tex Pest Management knows the fire ants plaguing commercial and residential properties in Austin, Texas and surrounding areas. Unlike many other ant species like Carpenter ants which bite and then spray acid on the wound, fire ants bite only to get a grip and then sting from their abdomen and inject a toxic venom. Fire ants are very active and increasingly aggressive when they feel their home is attacked. An attack from a fire ant typically causes instant and intense pain which quickly gives way to itching and skin irritation that lasts anywhere from a few hours to a few days. For people allergic to the venom, stings can be life-threatening. A single sting can produce symptoms of anaphylaxis in just a few minutes. The worst part is, fire ants usually attack in a group and so it’s unlikely you will suffer just one sting.
