My sister said she was stung by fire ants when she lived in Texas. She has been out of Texas for almost 6 months now. She claims that the fire ants left their stingers in her legs. She says she is still removing the stingers. Is the so? Do the fire ants leave their stingers in their victims when they sting, and if so,would they still be in her legs after all this time?
