What do fire ant nests look like? 

Fire ant mounds are large, between two and four square feet, and have an oblong, irregular shape. The entrances and exits are located on the sides of the mounds, not on the top. Fire ants build their nests in open, sunny areas and avoid constructing them in wooded areas or areas with a lot of shade.

What attracts fire ants?

These ants are attracted to warm, humid environments, and large open outdoor spaces such as yards, parks, and fields, making Northeast Florida the perfect environment. 

They are also attracted to properties that offer them easy access to food sources. Fire ants are omnivores, meaning that they feed on a wide variety of plants and animals, including earthworms, spiders, small mammals such as birds and rodents, and any fruits or vegetables that they happen across.

Are fire ants dangerous?

Fire ants aggressively defend themselves and their nests from perceived threats, including humans and animals, by attacking in large numbers and repeatedly stinging and injecting venom.

Being bitten by fire ants is not only extremely painful but can also be dangerous. Their venom can trigger anaphylaxis, which is life-threatening and requires immediate medical attention.
