Has anyone else's child been bit by fire ants? My son has like 30-40 bites on his ankles (and like 10 on his groin where one must have slipped up his shorts). I took him to the dr and they said fire ants, but my son didn't feel them when they bit. I am just still surprised that he didn't feel them - it supposedly hurts a lot. Has anyone else had experience with fire ant bites not hurting? Also - how did you get rid of the fire ants in your yard?
We have a friend who is an exterminator and he came and sprayed the yard and we haven't had a problem with them. As for the fire ants not hurting I've been bitten by them and honestly I didn't feel it until after the fact.

I bought something at Lowe's that you sprinkle on the site where they are. But you might want to call one of those bug companies, they might be able to help.
