Fire Ants In Cambridge

In the middle of this summer’s drought it feels like the desert around here.  But maybe it’s the jungle.  Turns out we’ve got fire ants in Cambridge.  How weird is that?

The City of Cambridge website has an alert about the fire ants recently discovered in North Cambridge in Danehy Park and several Bellis Circle yards.  These are European Fire Ants – thought to have been brought to Cambridge in plants from Maine.

The Cambridge Chronicle reported today on efforts to eradicate the fire ants which, according to one homeowner who has colonies in his backyard, will “crawl up your legs and bite you” if you venture near them.  Eeek!!

    These ants (Myrmica rubra)are fairly harmless and have been in Cambridge since 1908.

    The real red fire ants — Solenopsis invicta — find Cambridge too far north for their liking. So far.
