|I am looking for any information to "control"
biting red ants infesting my yard. We live in the suburbs of Massachusetts
near conservation land. This summer has been very hot
and dry and this is the first year that we have noticed how many of these
voracious insects are living in our yard. Just walking
on the lawn brings on an attack. Our toddler has been bitten twice
and since being swarmed while attempting to reach her swingset, has refused
to go outside. These black bodied, red headed ants swarm anyone and
we are now confined to the house or deck. Is there anything that
can be done to reduce the number of these biting insects? Can you
tell by my location and description just what these pests are?
|Do fire ants live in Massachussetts?
I have a research project for work on this topic. A person moved
from Florida to Massachusetts because of a severe allergic reaction to
fire ant bites. Thanks for any help you can provide.
