I'd like to watch that battle.

That's okay. If they were fire ants they were the mildest, least painful fire ants I've had the displeasure of meeting. And being barefoot makes it much easier to be spotted in the crowd during the lead card video.

No they cannot sting threw fabric. However they are extremely aggressive and persistent and simply keep climbing until they find bare flesh.
