Recommended Posts

I was just wondering if any southern riders encounter fire ant stings from roost when trail riding. Or is it eeven a problem.

I found out i am allergic to fire ants while working on my bike about a week ago. I set a screw driver down and a ant got on it and bit me when i went to pick it up. I was put on 3 different kinds of meds and i got put on quarters for 2 days. It took like 12 hrs for my hand to swell up this much after being bit. My hand is fine now, but it took two days for the swelling to go down.

Normal:
