If you are noticing tiny ants that pack a powerful long-lasting sting invading your Hawaiian property you are not alone. Little fire ants are tiny non-native invaders that have taken over the eastern side of the Hawaii Island and if people are not vigilant they will soon spread and cause damage to other parts of Hawaii as well. These ants will rain down from trees on windy days to sting the neck, arms, and torso of people and children.
