Evil Little Insects

10 April 2009
Do you have fire ants where you live? Here in Podunk they are a real problem. It seems no matter what you do, you just cannot get rid of them. Last summer our yard was covered in the nasty little buggers. They are more of a problem for us, as Tristen and I are both highly allergic to them. Obviously having them surround our home is not the best situation.

I am feeling hopeful this year as I've found some great advice on how to wage the battle of the fireant. Hopefully one of the methods I've read about will work for us. I am willing to try anything at this point. They need to go away!

So, do you have to deal with these pests? Have you found a good way to make them leave? I am eager to hear your input!

We sometimes get an ant bed in the back yard.... but haven't (knock on wood) been overrun with the things as of yet. :) Good luck ...hopin' you get rid of the pesky ants.

My oldest son is extremely allergic to Fire Ants. He has to get a weekly shot for immunotherapy and we have to carry an EpiPen at all times. Yes, I HATE them!

LOL! I live in Podunk too! Thankfully we don't get FireAnts in our Podunk (I think we are too far north for that!)

We have all kinds of bugs here, not fireants but everything else. In fact we have grain moths which are impossible to get rid of :(
