This is not one of Jim’s favorite critters. It makes lots of holes in the yard. I even keep a shovel by the porch steps so I can fill them in while they are fresh. I have noticed a big drop in the number of Fire Ant hills. I still have to “feed” a mound once in awhile but we used to have at least half a dozen after a big rain. Now it’s only one or two.
It was raining when I took these. I guess that is why it looks so shiny.
They aren’t really what you’d call “cute”…but I like the little guys.
I kept trying to sneak up on it whenever it was looking the other way.
I must have been doing laundry…I can hear the well pump running in the background.
