don't do any damage to your yard, but they can cause damage with their bite.

can have very severe allergic reactions to the bite. There are products
that address the problem. Ortho Fire Ant Killer can be sprinkled on the
mound, and the fire ants will take it inside to the queen ant and kill her. But, if they escape, they will start new colonies.
