This is just awful!!
65-year-old Jenny Pomeroy died after a severe allergic reaction to a painful fire ant sting!
Last week, at Pomeroy's Buckhead condo, she was sitting by her pool when a fire ant stung her!
She knew she was allergic but didn't have much time to react after being stung. She quickly went into anaphylactic shock.
That means her entire body had a serious allergic reaction!
She was rushed to the hospital but eventually died days later due to complications. So sad!
That's absolutely awful!! Our hearts and thoughts go out to her family and friends.
Check out the video (above) to find out a little more about this sad story.

There's a trial along the path to manhood for those living in the Amazon jungle… the bullet ant test!

Turns out, a species of ants will follow each other into massive suicide.
The war between insects and arachnids has come down to one final epic battle!
Admittedly we're a bit grossed out by both.
But this intense fight is worth a watch.
Totally impressive or totally creepy?
When a city floods, humans stack sandbags and raise levees. When a fire ant colony floods, the ants link up to form a literal life raft.
According to new research,
"They'll gather up all the eggs in the colony and will make their way up through the underground network of tunnels, and when the flood waters rise above the ground, they'll link up together in these massive rafts."
In less than two minutes the ants can link "hands" to form a floating structure that kept all the insects safe.
You would think the ant on the bottom would be SOL but even the ants down below survive, thanks to tiny hairs on the ants' bodies that trap a thin layer of air.
