Regarding your post to Sanet-mg on fire ants.
Did you know that there is a firm in Texas that sells parasitic mites
that are reported by BIRC (Biological Intergral Resource Center) to
control fire ants?
I have only an occasional mound on my shady city property. Fire ants do
not seem to like shade; seem to prefer sunny areas. However,
occasionally I get a small mound, which is eliminated with:
1) spent coffee grounds
2) diatomaceous earth
3) bone meal
and if all else fails,
4) boiling water and Tabasco (or other brands of hot sauces)
Boiling water kills grass and sterilizes soil. Hence, I've learned to
use it as a last rather than a first resort.
