    Known Fire Ant distribution globally... looks like Ontario could be new to the list... may be a larger range expansion.
    Did some research and they are probably the invasive European Fire ant. Couldnít believe how aggressive they were. Like a bunch of little Rambos.

    Actually nothing to do with the bumble bee as such but rather after the old Derbyshire fishing fly, Derbyshire Bumbles, a heavily hackled palmer for rough water.

    You must have stood on their nest for an extended period. Yep, we have a bunch of them here in SC. There are several nests in my yard and a constant battle with them.

    I've read there are about 200 species worldwide. Nasty little buggers!

    I have no idea what you can do, other than be more aware of your surroundings & stay away from them!

    Where I fish, I'm more concerned with the possibility of Cottonmouths and Alligators!
    Remember, no one likes to be behind the big truck, but that's better than being under it!
