There are more than 12,500 identified species of ants in the world today. Some ants are calm, but some ant species, one bite or sting can cause you to black out or can even kill you.
Some of them are as follows:
Bulldog Ant – This ant is the record holder for the most dangerous ants in the world. Why? Because when you get bitten and stung, you can be killed in just 15 minutes.
Fire ant – This ant is one of the most aggressive types of ants. If you disrupt these ants, they will swarm. These ants also have an extremely painful sting, and unfortunately, if you are stung, your skin will become red, swollen and you may experience lots of puss.
Bullet Ant – This ant is known to have one of the most painful stings because when you get stung, you will feel pain for up to 24 hours. Some victims even describe being stung by this ant as painful as being shot.
You should stop the infestations as soon as you notice it, as the longer you wait, the harder it will be to get rid of the ants. Once they build a colony in the walls of your home or office, it can be very difficult to shoo them away.
Spraying individual ants with pesticide DOES NOT work. It is not effective and does not solve the root of the problem. For a professional pest control service, call Earth Guard Pest Services at 916-457-7605 / 877-328-4468.
