Fireants! Why did it have to be fireants?? I thought they were cute little black ants on the front porch like the ones I grew up with in Virginia that we put out cute little ant traps for. Then…the stings began. 24 hours later my hand (left, thank goodness) looks like a blown up glove with 4 sting sites. Forearm swollen like a balloon animal with just 3. Wow. I got my spider kill spray and killed the heck out of them. No dogs were harmed in this action just the human and a whole lotta cute little black ants.
