you have fire ants in wisconsin?Ardie/WI said:We have a few on our land and I'm wondering what is the easiest way to rid ourselves of them?
No fire ants that I know of. These are just plain ordinary ants.moonwolf said:you have fire ants in wisconsin?
or do you mean just the big common anthills seen in practically in all fields or pastures? Some here are easily 5 ft. diameter and some 2 ft. tall. I tried boric acid on one near the garden. The ants still returned. :shrug:
I've also been told that if you take a shovelfull of ants and dirt from one hilll, and put that on another anthill, the ants will fight and destroy the mound. I tried this once. To tell the truth, I never went back in that part of the field to see the end results. lolNWoods_Hippie said:We have HUGE ant mounds up here, same as MW easy 5 feet across and sometimes they are close to 3 feet high. When I had one in the yard of a place I moved into I just went out and dug the whole thing up, the ants got mad and moved I guess cause they didn't re-build the mound.
Wasn't talking about sugar---Splenda.pixelphotograph said:grits dont work sorry old wives tale. Being from the state of Georgia home to Fireant College where we have Professors and students who do nothing but study fire ants I should know.
The University of georgia has specialty classes just on fireants LOL
Sugar isnt a good idea either unless you want to raise and breed ants LOL
Gosh people are you crazy?
The truth is its hard to get rid of ants.
There are ant baits that are available on the market that work well.
Amdro comes to mind.
