Garden ants

Woke up in the middle of the night with several huge bites on my legs that itched like H______. I was in the garden again yesterday, with high socks, and yet those darn ants started crawling up my leg and bit me to no end. I thought I got into the house in time to wash and apply some calamine lotion to avoid problems later but that apparently doesn't matter. The itch is incredible. I'm to the point of protecting my entire body anymore when I'm in the yard working. Yes, you will be hot but worth it later. Watch out for those ants, they are easy to overlook.
