Raleigh is home to many bugs, but Fire ants are definitely some of the most treacherous to find on your property. More invasive than most ant species, Fire ants are powerful insect predators. These insects are known for their powerful fire-like sting. Colonies of fire ants can reach up to 250,000 workers, and can easily take down large spiders and small mammals. Be sure to keep your home protected from these pests. Having professional help would be the best solution.
