I stepped on a big red and black ant. I have never seen one so big does anyone know what kind it is. It's mostly red with black stripes all over its body.

I believe this "ant" is the wingless wasp which goes by two names: the velvet ant or the cow-killer wasp.

I've seen them called Velvet Ants, also, and have heard them called cow killers. Never been bit, but am scared to death of them.

Hi. I live in Georgia and Mom and I just saw one of these weird ants a few minutes ago. We have never seen them before.

Only, the one we saw was not fuzzy. It was smooth and shiny. It was about one inch long...the largest ant I have ever seen. But other than that, it looked just like the picture.

How bad are these Cow Ants? If there is one, are there more? Does anyone know how to get rid of them?
