Fire Ant Bites........

Postby oldsparkey » Wed Oct 12, 2016 10:32 am

I got in the fire ants today , seams like the Hurricane last week made a lot of them move to dryer ground and set up homesteading.

I remembered Ron posted this in another article.........Try this next time you get fire ant bit, take bleach and water 50 50 put on the bite as soon as possible, it will keep it from getting puss in it and scaring
It works also helps with the itch .


It works. :D

I dab straight Clorox on the bite. After a minute I wash it well and forget about it. Of course my entire body now looks like a pair of stone-washed jeans from the 70's!

When I lived in Louisiana, there were fire ants, water mocassins, and other pests around. I moved.
