Fire ants.... painful.
Running barefoot from fire ants through a yard infested
with needle sharp spiky weeds.... torturous!


I painted a lot of chiggers as a Boy Scout. If I
remember, calamine lotion is helpful for the itching.
I THINK there are products targeted toward them in
drug stores like Walgreen's. Not sure, but I think so.

Well, Rom, should one of those little critters ever hop a boat to your side of the world they would soon take over---they love warm, hot places. They are very tiny mites that burrow under your skin and they cause horrible itching and for most people reds bumps. They are miserable. I used to catch grasshoppers as a kid and see them hanging on for the ride.
