Fire Ant? - Brachyponera chinensis
Newport News, Virginia, USA
October 18, 2005
Size: Approx. 0.5 cm.
Can anyone tell me if this is a species of fire ant? The bites/stings are very painful (have a strong burning sensation) and in some cases swell up to the size of a quarter and itch for days afterwards. Any help with ID is appreciated!
