Fire Ants Are Evil

Woman angry at fire ants

Fire Ants Are Evil

We’ve been in Texas for two years.

We’ve gotten rid of the chiggers.

We’ve controlled the mosquitos.

We’ve held the wasps at bay.

But there is nothing to be done about the fire ants.

They are evil.

They laugh when you spray them with Raid.

They thumb their little ant noses and continue on their devious ant missions.

I have several new bites on my hand.

How in the world did they get on my hand?

And why would they stop there?

Why didn’t they crawl up and bite my arm?

If I knew what made them stop after biting my hand, I would do that thing again.

And again and again and again.

Stupid ants.

A FIRE ANT BITE

The only thing worse than a fire ant bite is several fire ant bites.

Yep, I stepped on an ant hill.

For a moment, I was wearing an ant sock.

I got about half a dozen bites, and I’m surprised there weren’t more.

Right now it’s just a little sting.

But I know that in the middle of the night, I am going to wake up with napalm-filled blisters.

Stupid ants.
