Fire Ants (Solenopsis Invicta) Fire ants are identified with their reddish brown color. They make noticeable mounds in almost any type of soil, but prefer open sunny areas, such as lawns, parks, and fields, with no visible entrance holes on the mound itself. Characteristics of the fire ant are the aggressive swarming behavior and painful stings, generally due to nest disturbance. Fire ants almost always nest outdoors, although they will enter buildings in search of food and water, especially in late summer.
