John - please tell me there are other red ants besides fire ants. Had pruning, weeding, mulching and a couple of dying bushes taken out yesterday and late today I noticed about 15 maybe 1/8 inch or so reddish ants on one end of my ground level red brick patio by the grass. They were swarming around and presume it was from yesterday's disturbance. They did find 2 colonies of fire ants in Cambridge on July 23 so I am hoping that is not what I have now. Enough is enough.

If I was able to get a couple could I send them in to you and if so how would I get them and how would I send them - like, what steps would I have to follow.

I have a humungous list of allergies and have to carry an epipen with me and I heard fire ants can cause quite a reaction so need your advice. Now I have to worry about that when the grandkids are here - they play on the patio.

Hoping not all reddish ants are fire ants -- haven't really examined but haven't noticed any really large mounds, just a few with really small pavement ants.

As always, thanks for your expertise and I hope you will give me directions as to how to catch and send.
