A North Carolina man died after he was bitten by a fire ant that led to an allergic reaction, his family revealed in an effort to warn others about the insect.

Floyd Edwards died on Sept. 28 after going into Anaphylactic shock that was triggered by a fire ant bite, his family told WTVD. Edwards was in a trailer on his Franklinton property with his sons when he began experiencing some symptoms.

The article goes on to state the following:

“There ain’t no telling how many times he got bit by fire ants,” Edwards’ son, Carlton Curtis, told WTVD. “All of a sudden he says, ‘Carlton, something’s in my throat.'”

According to the family, Edwards went into the house to drink some water but things only got worse. Paramedics arrived at their house and administered two shots with an EpiPen and Benadryl. The efforts to save him fell short — he later died after suffering a severe allergic reaction.

  1. Ants are members of the wasp family and wasp venom is the deadliest poison known to man. If a wasp sting injected as much venom as a rattlenake the result would be instant death. Fire ants have stingers just like hornets and fire ants attack in large numbers so they are capable of injecting enough to kill a grown man whether or not he is allergic.
