I was unlocking my golf cart one night and was parked under a tree with large roots. Little did I know that fire ants build their homes under the tree roots for protection. Anyway, within seconds those damn tiny ants were all over my feet. I was in sandals of course. The pain was like nothing I have ever felt, except childbirth. I ran to find some light and brushed them off as fast as I could. That was just the beginning. The pain grew more and more intense. It doesn't go away. Luckily a local guy noticed my plight and ran in to a building and came out with some rubbing alcohol. He poured it all over my feet and after about 15 minutes the pain started to subside. What a nice guy. That is what most people of AC are like. So, if any of you get on top of a fire ant mound and are unfortunate enough to suffer the same fate I did, remember, rubbing alcohol is the only thing that will give you any relief. The next day I had little itchy blisters all over my feet. The marks are still there and it has been over 2 weeks since we returned from our trip. BUMMER - BE CAREFUL!
