Tiny red ants.& they bite....
I was planting a wooden whiskey barrell type planter when I noticed LOTS of tiny red ants had nested in this planter. (I've had this planter for years)Before I realized they were there...they got all over my arm and started biting. This was a couple of days ago. Now I have fairly big red itchy bumps on my arm where I was bit. I've never seen ants like these before. I've never been bit by ants before.
I am not sick or anything from these bites...but, they itch like crazy. Have any of your encountered ants like these in your Ohio Valley garden? What does one put on a ants bite...I wonder?
In fact...I have ants like crazy all over my gardens. I have small black, small red, and medium size black. They are everywhere.
