Fire ants can be distinguished from other ants by their copper brown head and body with a darker abdomen. The worker ants are blackish to reddish, and their size varies from approximately 1/8 inch to 1/4 inch long. They produce large mounds in open areas, and while they feed mostly on young plants, fire ants often attack small animals and can kill them.
The bite of a fire ant packs a powerful punch; they actually bite only to grip, and then sting to inject a toxic venom. To people, this can be very painful, and has been compared to being burned by… fire. To some people these stings can be deadly.
Carpenter ants build nests inside wood that has been chewed out by their mandibles. Unlike termites, they do not eat the wood. Sometimes carpenter ants will hollow out sections of trees, and are also known for infesting wooden buildings and structures. They are a supreme nuisance and major cause of structural damage.
