Old Rube bayed a boar coon in a thicket this morning before daylight. I crawled in to assist after innocoluting, one of the dang red devils blew his little bugle and the dance was on. How in the world can a thousand of the devils get on you and never feel one until that bugle goes off.

Beats me CB. They can send an army up your leg and you'll never feel on thing til they hear that bugle and then they're all over you.

I have not had a run in yet this year. I know it's coming, though. They don't bother me like they do other people, so I guess that in that, I am lucky.

If you are bitten once, you will be bitten a hundred times.

I've heard that and I guess that's why we used to call the pi$$ants.

I have never heard that. I do understand that they can bite and sting.

Jogee, piss ants aren't the same thing. You don't have fireants in Georgia? I can export some if you like...

Oh, we got got our share of the nasty creatures even though the experts said they would never live here. Other than another name for fireants I don't know what a pi$$ ant is though.

If you want to get rid of fireants get yourself a can of Orthene Tobacco Spray. Its a powder and has a foil lid on it. Punch some holes in the foil and use it as a salt shaker on the mound. Don't need much. Come back the next day and they are grave yard dead.

When you say pi$$ ants, I think of the little red ants that used to get on you and although they didn't have much sting, they make an awful smell when alarmed that smelled faintly like pee.

I use the Orthene powder all the time. Bad smell. Good stuff.

That may be, as well. I thought I remember them biting, but who knows. I haven't seen one in ages. Used to be we had Red Ants, (Harvester ants), Carpenter Ants, black ants, and pi$$ ants. Now we just have fire ants and carpenter ants. Lady down the road has harvester ants in her yard. They are rare birds anymore.
