Velvet Ant Sting Pain

A-Tex Pest Management is experienced in handling insect control for homes and business in the Greater Austin Texas area, including velvet ants. Velvet ants, also known as cow killer ants, are actually solitary wasps that do not live in a colony like most of their wasp relatives. Velvet ants or wasps, are hairy and colored red and black. Females do not feature two pairs of dark colored wings as the males do. The females carry a toxic sting, and even they are not capable of killing a cow, the pain is said to be so intense that “it could kill a cow” hence their nickname. The males do not sting. Though very capable of defending themselves, velvet ants are not aggressive, but during their adolescence they are often found in the ground. If stepped on with bare feet, you will certainly feel their painful sting.
