First learned- the hard way, of course, about them upon moving to Texas three years ago! Went to pull a weed (one of gazzillions in my lawn) and a single ant found my index finger- now it looks like I have two thumbs, and the new one itches like hell!

One of the more charming features of our two years in Austin.

Your fire ants and our jumping jacks have the same type of venom, nasty. Can they cause an anaphalctic reaction?

It sounds like you need Kevlar gardening gloves.
