Yes they are awful, but c'mon, its fun to pop all those pimples the bites turn into...
We use a service out of Stuart. They apply a non-toxic hormonal based product that eliminates the ability of the queen to reproduce. They apply twice a year and we haven't seen fire ants since they started. They guarantee that the fire ants will be gone or they will reapply. It also handles fleas and ticks as a side effect, but they do not guarantee that part.
I've got those on both feet, you want to come pop them for me?
When I first moved to FL I learned about those bad boys the hard way . The GF and I went to the beach and pulled over to the side of the road and I was standing there next thing I know they're half way up to me knee biting the crap out of me. The house in Clermont was in a former citrus grove and there were tons of them, and there was this place on south orange ave in O-Town that sold industrial strength andro. Problem solved quickly.
It isn't the fastest solution, but a magnifying glass is a fun way to nuke those suckers! Anyone remember that?
Must need the latest upgrade.
When you have a couple hills take about a half shovel and place on other mound and do the same with that one
They will fight it out to the death of both hills
No cost no poison lots of entertainment
Sure As Frank Zappa said, in "Dynamo Humm" and "Montana", as well as several other songs, use a long set of "Zircon Encrusted Tweezers"
Any other wrangler would think I was mighty grand. By my self I wouldn't have no boss but I'd be raising...
Funny...one time in my youth I can stung bad in my yard. I was so pissed I got some gasoline and torched the mound. I thoroughly enjoyed it. But this caused a hole in the lawn for like 5 ± years. My dad was pissed at me lol
Just get yourself a nice big magnifying glass and bake the frigging things!
Haven't seen a fire ant in years.
On the other hand, just drove up to tampa and those damn love bugs are everywhere. Only purpose has to be to help the car wash biz.
Yeah, it IS the season for the love bug plague.
Any flammable liquid kills them almost instantly.
In the late fall, Set fire to your whole friggin Lawn!
Been in the pest control business for almost 35 years.
Telstra works well but go to any hardware store and buy what is called, "Over And Out; Advanced."
Comes in a blueish metallic bag.
Contains the active ingredient: Fipronil... which has a tremendous TRANSFER effect.
Once an ant touches one of the granuals then it absorbs the Fipronil into its body.
Then, whenever it touches another ant, the Fipronil gets transfers to the second ant...and then the second ant can transfer the product to a third ant.
Very smart product.
Takes a couple of weeks but really works.
(Over And Out is the ONLY non-restrictive pesticide the consumer can buy over the counter that has Fipronil.)
It is what professionals use for Fire Ants.
Argentine Ants...now that's another issue altogether.
Fire ants were invented when I threw up a mouthload of spicy Sriracha sauce over an ant hill.
