Posts with the tag: "fire ants"
If you have ever been strolling along and noticed a soft dirt mound with reddish looking ants scurrying in and out of it, you might find it much safer to just go around. There is a good chance that what you are witnessing are not regular, every day ants. These are probably fire ants, and they are nothing that you want to put your foot into, so to speak. Hawaii is a haven for all creatures great and small; and since the fire ant was introduced, they have taken hold in a big way.
