I hate these little bugs. Good thing they glow under black light.

Arizona bark scorpions. No, theyíre not deadly unless youíre allergic, or maybe a baby.

Fire ants? Yeah, some. But they arenít like they got in Texas and the Deep South. They are small and not very aggressive. Not something to worry or even think about.

Killer bees though... almost all our bees are Africanized or hybrids now.

You can call them fire ants. We call them far ants cuz you want to stay far away from them.

I found out the hard way on the first day we moved into our house and I was trying to do a little clean up -- I nearly got eaten alive. It only took seconds and I had bites up to my knees. Could have been worse -- but I had a running hose in my hand and I was able to wash them off. Hurt like hell at first -- itched and burned for days afterward.

No, you call them far ants cuz you southerners can't pronounce "Fire."

You know -- all y'all.
