    I have a huge red ant bed in my yard. I have had them for years now. I have tried everything. When i think they are gone boom they come back! What can i do?

    when I was in Texas we'd mix gas and dish washing liquid and soak a stick in it overnight and then jam it in fire ant mound and light it after they swarmed it. :yes:

    it didn't kill the colony but it was fun.

    I think some of you guys who haven't lived there don't understand the scope of the problem at hand. :jj:

    These ant swarms will kill a chicken. They roll like a million ants strong and build HUGE colonies.


    Magnifying glass. :rofl: It better be a big one.
