"Red Imported Fire Ants have a knack for appearing at the worst times. You may have encountered them while half-way through a picnic in the park or your child might have been stung in the middle of a sports game. Maybe you've stepped on an ant hill while mowing your lawn. No matter where you've encountered fire ants, you probably know how painful their stings can be."
"Most residents in South Carolina know how much of a nuisance red imported fire ants are and how dangerous an encounter with them can be. These dark reddish-brown colored ants are extremely aggressive and can be found throughout South Carolina due to the favorable conditions in this area that allow them to thrive."
