I am beyond grossed out. Our property was invaded by nasty red ants this season. These are not the tiny red ants we normally see here. These are big, fast red ants with a nasty bite. The little guys bite, too, but nothing like this!
They’re colonizing rapidly, too. Every time I roam the yard watering the flower beds, I see more droves of them marching to new areas. They come carrying eggs and pupae.
I took pictures of them today since it was the only way I could get a good look at them. Thus far, I’ve not had much success in identifying them; most online sources seem to offer black and white drawings. Please forgive the picture quality. Like I said, they’re really fast, plus and they bite…I didn’t want to stay in their path any longer than I had to!
