...I forgot about Texas that I hate. FIRE ANTS! They aren't in Oregon or Washington, thank god. Fire ants, or red ants, are horrible little bastards that will swarm over every inch of exposed or unexposed flesh that you offer, and sting the fuck out of you. It hurts like a mutha. Even just one sting will hurt for like a week. There has been reported deaths for multiple stings too. Oh, and the little fuckers float, so you can still get stung if you're in a pool or lake. Invest in a skimmer!
