In brief: The shriek or scream

If there was no shriek nor scream, then it is unlikely that one fire ant bit.
Fire ant bites hurt. Also, their bites often become little water blisters, which have a noticeable appearance on the skin. Finally, fire ants are not loners. If one fire ant bites, his buddies are also biting.
