We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
Imported Fire Ants, man don't get me started. They love electrical fields, and will pack off in electrical wall outlets, or even worse, the contact points that control your water wells. We would have to change out our circuit breakers in the electrical boxes one by one because of them getting inside and rendering them inoperable. They stack up their dead. If you disturb these little piles of dead ants, you'll come back later and find them re-stacked. 20 years ago they were much worse than they are now, out in the countryside - Not only because of Amdro, I think the native varieties have interbred with the aggressive South American (imported) ones so they aren't as rampant now. Weird weird weird little creatures. The only thing good about them, they get rid of ticks. Now the ticks are starting to re-surge.
Those aren't fire ants in the video but I don't suppose it matters much.
Back when we lived on the river the entire yard would flood several times a year. It was a great time to kill off the fire ants. I filled a gallon sprayer with dish washing soap and water then went hunting. The ants from a mound made a little floating mountain in the water. A little squirt with soap would break their surface tension and down they would go to drown. The biggest colony I ever sprayed was 5' across and probably a foot high in the middle.
