Fire ants are well known for their stings. While these stings usually only cause raised welts in most people, those that are allergic could have very severe reactions. Due to this danger, it is very important that fire ants are kept away from the home to reduce the chance of a stinging taking place. These ants can construct their nests anywhere in the yard, but they especially like covered areas such as beneath mulch, yard decorations, and wood. If they nest near the foundation of your home, this could provide them with easy access into the house.
