Fire ants are a type of stinging ant. It's not the bite that hurts (they only bite to get a grip), it's the sting. The sting hurts because they inject a venom that produces the burning sensation.

How did they treat a rattlesnake bite in the 1840s?

If someone got bitten by a venomous snake, another pioneer would take a knife and cut an "x" at the bite location. They would then suck out the blood and hopefully the poison. Sometimes this worked and sometimes this didn't.If it didn't work the victim would most likely die. If they happen to be lucky enough to survive, the body part that was bitten would normally have to be amputated. If they were bitten on their core, death was almost certain.
