Cool Easy, Effective way to Kill FIRE ANTS

Bring out yer dead!


That is what the ants are doing! Really funny to watch. That heap up their dead in a huge pile! Lol


Directions:



Heat up a pot of water to boiling. A BIG pot!


And dump on any hill! Stir up the ants right before dumping. And then watch carnage! oh yea!

These ants were at a community garden and we apparently brought then back with us. They are the worst kind, biting even with no disruption. Meaning they crawl up on your foot and bite even if you arenít close to an anthill, and didnít disrupt them. We didnít have this kind at our house, so I could walk around barefoot, so I need to get these little buggers off as soon as possible. Oh and they picked the corner of the yard where by banana trees are when they had the whole friggin yard!















Whoops, accidentally got a centipede!








Also, it obviously canít be applied to lawn if you donít want to kill it. Also it will kill banana roots but it wonít hurt it if you donít completely drown the banana tree in it



And there you have it! Simple recipe! You do need to keep re-applying it daily to wipe out the survivors .

Millipede vice centipede. Millipedes are the harmless ones - centipedes are bad news.

Well these ones make compost. They turn a pile of wood chips into a pile of compost fast


What is the difference? Thanks!
