I vaugly remember seeing a fire ant nest somewhere along the trail between
Springer and Fontana Dam back in June of 2006. Hornets, Wasps, Yellow
Jackets and various Bees are a greater threat IMO. I got stung by a nest of
Southern Yellow Jackets a couple years ago north of NOC. 6 hard hits and I
stopped counting the little ones after 18.
