My fire ant investigation in lockdown
By Oscar (age 7)
During lockdown, we found an ant on our deck. We thought it was a fire ant. We researched fire ants on the computer and we sent a photo to the iNaturalist app to see if someone could identify it for us.
Four different people wrote messages on the app. They said that it was not a fire ant. They thought it was a winged queen chelaner ant.
I was happy that it wasn’t a fire ant because fire ants are pests.
