    Red Ants

    I am looking for suggestions on getting rid of red ants. We have a tremendous amount of red ant mounds in our fields and woods. Some of the nests are 2-3 feet in diameter and a foot or so high. We have tried various ant killers with only limited success. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks. Greg

    Amdro is the only thing that's ever really worked for me. Don't broadcast it, just treat each mound with a teaspoon or so. It's the ONLY thing that will keep the fire ants under control here in AR.

    Red ants? The little boogers?
    We got a bunch a couple years ago, during that nasty drought.

    Plain old Sevin XLR or Macho 2.0 clears them out.

    Macho was 4oz to the acre rate IIRC, but check the label.

    Good luck!!

    Hmmm...if aluminum weren't so expensive, I wonder what Prairie Dog burrows would look like.

    That guy actually sold that one on eBay, I think it brought $1,600-1,700.
