Stinging Ants include jack jumper ants and bull ants. Jack jumpers are found across the southern half of Australia and related species occur across the north.
Avoid these critters as being stung from these little brutes really packs a punch for their size. They are very aggressive and become agitated when disturbed. They will give you a painful fiery sting which will hurt for a long time. If you are stung to relieve the swelling and pain a cold compress should be applied and also gently wash the area with soap and water but leave the blister intact.
