Ant Identification
Queens 1.59cm long. Workers 3.18mm-6.35mm long. Coppery–brown on the head and body, with a darker abdomen. Fire ants have a very distinctive two–segment antennal club, which is most visible in the front view of the female reproductive ant.
Description
Foraging workers diet consists of dead animals, including insects, earthworms, and vertebrates. Workers also collect honeydew and forage for sweet food, proteins, and fats.

Swarming characteristics – mating between queens and fertile males takes place on the wing mid to late Summer. Males perish after mating. Nest locations can be a mound of up to 40 cm or next to objects found on the ground, e.g. logs.

If aggravated, these react aggressively and can inflict a painful sting, resulting in a pustule some 48 hours later.

These ants are a major agricultural and urban pest, destroying crops and invading residential areas both outdoors and indoors.
