Red ants have been a problem around the whole state of California due to the heat.
They get hot too and need a drink!
But as more ants come around, more bites have occurred, and red ant bites can be quite painful and can even blister.
At Stacey, on the first day of P.E., two people reported that they got bad bites.
If you do get a bite, wash the sting site with cold soap and water. Although these bites can itch intensely, it is recommended to refrain from scratching. If the itching is unbearable, antihistamines and cortisone creams may help. Usually, the symptoms resolve within a week.
So be aware and make sure you avoid areas where red ants might be.
