Eventhough I live in the city I don't want it to spread and if anyone who think that they are responsible please have it taken care of for their sake of the commmunity

I used to live in Middle Ga. and we had these little dangerous pests everywhere. Don't be fooled by their size. Their colonies can be so big if you get into a nest, thousands can be on you before you know it. They don't bite right away either. When they feel threatened, they emit a smell that triggers the rest of the army to attack, then they all start stinging at the same time. Also, don't fool yourself into thinking you've killed them if you see a nest vacated. Just look around and you will probably see the pest control you've used has only moved them. Beware, these are some really nasty intruders.

I used to live in whiteville where they make mounds a foot tall. They are some mean little ants with a nasty painful at first then very itchy sting
