Our house, which is located in Antipolo City, has lots of ants in its surrounding areas. Even while eating, once and a while, my son and I would spot a few ants scavenging for food on our dinner table. It’s a good thing they are not fire ants which sting.
Fire ants can bite and sting numerous times and they attack in droves causing intense pain and burning. To avoid fire ant stings one has to simply learn to recognize places that may have fire ants, like nests or mounds. Getting in the way of their food trail could be enough to cause a disturbance for them to start swarming. Visit ControlFireAnts.com for more information about fire ants.
