Yesterday as I was outside I noticed on the ground a big bright red ant with 2 black dots on its back. I tried to kill by stepping on it and it wouldnt die! This is the second one Ive saw since Ive been here. I asked some people on another forum I belong to and they said its the queen ant and to stay away from it. But they didnt tell me what its called. I need to know if its dangerous. I tried looking it up on the internet but couldnt find the kind Im looking for. If you can help me I would love it thanks.
