Fire ants! How I hate the buggers! I found if you immediately rub the inside of a banana peel on the bites, they won't form the little pustules or even itch! This has worked every time, even on my grandbaby!

Also tea tree oil works great-just rub a dab on the bite as soon as possible and it will take the pain away.
