I can confirm Pteridium esculentum (Harsh Bracken) works well on jumping ant bites. Leaves or stems crush generously and rub directly on bite for instant relief.
Che, I actually special ordered some Bracken a while back for just this reason. Crazy to see you all talk about it after I just got here to this cool new forum. Sometimes I have to hold my kids down because they think I'm crazy with all my "plants" but I'm the last one laughing when they are all smiles a little while later
